Chinese Door of Hope Doll Farmer Straw Raincoat
This Chinese Door of Hope doll, along with several others, was brought back to the US during the 1920's by the American Baptist Missionary, Rebecca Cloud-Stewart. On one of her many trips back to the US to visit family and friends, she brought the collection of dolls as samples to sell and raise money for the Door of Hope orphanage. After many years in China, Miss Stewart returned permenently to her home in Georgia. During the 1940's and 50's, she would often go to the local schools, lecturing about life in China. She passed away in the 70's

This doll has the original small hand written label from Rebecca Steward "raincoat" which identifies the outer straw garment of the farmer. He also has his original hat, barefeet and as with most Door of Hope "farmer" dolls, he has lost his rake.
