Hi my name is Linda Koch, Or simply Primdollie Koch!  Thanks so much for stopping to look at my offerings as well as all the wonderful artists here on Primitive Handmade Mercantile. 

My April Update

Well our nice warm temps have changed to more seasonal cooler temps and of course April showers! I hope you're enjoying your spring weather and early blossoms. I have two new elephants to offer this evening, both looking for new homes!

Please have a look at all the wonderful offerings all the artists have created again for you. We thank you for supporting us in all our creative endevors!

Please use the paypal button provided. I only have one of each available. All of these are one of a kind. I can make perhaps one similar but they won't ever be the exactly the same. Also each monitor may be different so the colors may be a bit darker or lighter than they may appear depending on your particular monitor. Thank you.


I prefer to use Paypal for payments. If you'd like to purchase more than one item please contact me after you've purchased one and I will combine shipping and send you a refund.  In order to see more views of my pieces please click on the main image of each item.  I can be reached for questions at or or my FB page

****SOLD**** thank you so much. My first offering is my little Elia elephant made from lovely imported German mohair. Elia is fully disc jointed and weighted to sit nicely. I have tinted her with oil paints and pastels to give her a primitive and old look, plus boo boo stitches as well! She has beautiful imported handmade German glass eyes and is wearing a little collar made of over dyed cheese cloth. She has a little tail and a tag with my name on it and the year. She is not a toy and shouldn’t get wet or washed! She’s stuffed with wood shavings and polyfil and added weights. She comes with her carrot made with overdyed muslin fabric and stuffed with crushed walnut shells. She stands at 8” and sitting is 6”! Kindly asking $115 plus shipping. The shipping will be a bit more because of her weight. Thank you so much. If any questions please ask! Click on main image to see two more pictures.
****SOLD**** thank you so much! My second little elephant is made of imported German viscose! Elina is sewn on top of an overdyed wool pincushion and then the whole piece glued on top of a large E alpha block. Her eyes are imported handmade German glass. Elina has a disc jointed head and her limbs were string jointed.I have tinted her to look old and primitive using again oil paints and pastels. I have stitched a little red valdani floss heart to her chest and she’s holding little alpha beads I’ve stained with pan pastels. She has a small tail and a tag with my name and year on it sewn to her back. The whole piece sits 8 1/2” tall , Elina is about 5 1/2” tall sitting. Kindly asking $85 plus shipping. Thank you so much.
