This doll has loose limbs that step dance or "jig" on the end of a vibrating board or platform, imitating a real step or clog dancer. Dancing dolls have been popular street entertainment dating back to the 16th century. The board is 18 1/2" long x 5 1/2" wide. This item is in very good original condition and it work just as it was designed to.I bought this item at an estate sale and have not cleaned it up, so he is a bit dusty. This is pretty rare and would make a great addition to any collection.
