Measuring 12 inches in height, this vintage 1950's, Mammy Bottle Doll is in lovely condition, with nicely detailed, colorful clothing and a very interesting face! She is well proportioned and her body is constructed of a brown stocking versus the more typically found black stocking.
Her felt and yarn stitched face portrays a startled expression and is accented by original celluloid hoop earrings. She wears a red bandanna, a white polka dot apron accented with red rickrack over her green, red, yellow and white flowered dress which is edged in white lace at the hem. She even wears a net petticoat underneath edged in red trim. Her machine-stitched clothes are odor free and are nicely constructed.
Mammy's body is constructed from a sand-filled milk bottle, and interestingly, her head is a styrofoam ball rather than simply being stuffed with cotton batting.
