Unusual oil cloth black doll 19th C. antique
Early and nice black doll made with black oil cloth. She has sewn on astrakhan hair,bone button eyes, hemp eyebrows and embroidered floss mouth. She has continuous arms but from use move nicely and has attached legs so she sits easily. She is 18" tall, pretty firmly stuffed with cotton but still a little squeezable. She has on a red calico dress and a white petticoat, nice but not original. I have no idea what she would have been wearing. I think she is hand sewn but I am not positive. The oil cloth has a design to make it look like leather. This is a really interesting and fairly early black doll. Circa 1890
