17th Century Santos Cage doll or Spanish Fashion Doll/ Santos Cage Doll. This Incredible 27" hand carved pear wood Cage Doll is one of the most beautiful I have seen. She is more like a sculpture than a doll. Her beautiful serene face looks alive! The note that came with her states that she is from 1630. The Spanish cage doll was made mostly in Spain as fashion dolls which were given as gifts among royalty to show the latest fashions.
