Please refer to our stock # BA928 when inquiring.
Measuring 13 inches in height, this vintage 1930's, Mammy Bottle Doll is in well-loved condition, with a combination of machine and hand-stitched clothing that has been recently hand-laundered and carefully pressed. She sports a 48 star American flag making her very patriotic indeed!

Her interesting face is hand-stitched with a red satin fabric mouth, mother-of-pearl button eyes, and fab, round, celluloid earrings. Just love her face!!!

Mammy wears a red and cream checked bandanna that matches her shawl. Her blue and cream flowered skirt and blouse, present in various different shades as Mammy's outfit has been subjected to light over the years and is in places, quite faded! Mammy's clothing is speckled here and there with teeny pinpoint size holes, with more obvious small tears in her shawl and bandanna as noted in photos.

Although her bottle frame is covered by a black stocking, the stocking has opened slightly under her skirt at the base revealing her vintage, sand-filled, milk bottle.

This wonderful, early bottle doll is one of 5 currently offered bottle dolls --- all priced separately. This bottle doll is my personal favorite!!
