I call this type of doll a security doll. You just know that they were clutched close to the body and were hauled everywhere. He has on a very worn velvet coat that is thread bare in many places. He is rag stuffed and hand stitched down the middle of front and the middle of the back. There is some treadle stitching on his arms and over his head but that is just on the outer covering. He has stocking legs with homespun maroon colored wool sewn on for shoes. He is simplistic and wonderful. He is 12" tall and circa 1870-80
