A very nice antique black cloth doll with a wonderful embroidered face. She has knotted wool hair pulled through heavy foundation fabric. Her head is round and very hard, her chest is very firm also. Her hips are wide but cotton stuffed as well as her legs. She is very interesting and I can't exactly tell how she was made but I think she is all original and has stockinette and fabric combined in her making. Her dress doesn't come off. She is 17" tall, she sits easily...

This little stockinette black doll is hand sewn and straight forward. She has nice mitten hands with thumbs, nicely shaped feet, is stuffed with cotton and is a mini work of art. Her head is turned to the side a little and I think it is intentional. The embroidered face is sewn with a really skilled hand in the tiniest of stitches. She has on a make-do dress that is a red calico print apron. Looks good from the front but a little WO! WO! from the back...

Maybe you are like a lot of women, some days you wake up and feel pretty good then you look in the mirror and say, boy looks like I could use another 8 or 10 hours of sleep. Well this doll doesn't have to worry about that. She can be as beautiful or as rough around the edges as the day produces and we are never going to know it. We will remember her soft and flowing antique blouse and skirt...

This dear little linen doll is all hand sewn. She had an embroidered face that is almost all gone, maybe the floss was wool? She has on a soft red cotton dress that is also all hand sewn. Her legs feel like they are rolled, her arms feel like they are stuffed with bran, and her body has a very old small corncob that is surrounded by stuffing up to her waist and then you just feel the corncob until it goes into her head. The corncob is broken into two pieces...

This doll was made with things at hand and with a simple hand drawn pencil face. She has short folky arms with stitched defined fingers. She is stuffed with rag and straw and cotton. She crinkles a bit when squeezed here and there. She is as found in her mustard colored make-do old calico dress. It is sewn closed so I am not going to take it off. Her head may have been recovered at some point but this covering is old, She is jointed at the shoulders and hips so she sits nicely...

This 15" black doll made with stockinette is quite exceptional. She is all original, has an embroidered face, finely sewn, raised nose, lambs wool hair, stitched defined fingers and nicely shaped feet. She is jointed at the shoulders, hips and knees. Her clothes I feel are completely original. She has a curvy hourglass figure with her body firmly stuffed with cotton...

Extremely Rare Poupee (doll) from the Louis Vuitton Toy Shop. Made from a type of plastic (possibly celluloid) with delicate hand painted features, dressed in a detailed regional costume of Bretagne (Brittany). The costume appears to be of a style found in the area around Pont Aven. The face of the doll is of a mature woman not a child. The dolls wig appears to be of human hair and is in a pulled back style. The headdress is of stiffened lace, as is the wide collar of the dress. The dress itself...

This 15" black cloth doll is a study in hard work. The mother that made this doll spent a lot of time making the mouth and eyebrows of this doll. They are tiny little stitches that really show up. Her mouth is straight but she also worked in white to make the teeth. She has raveled yarn hair sewn into the cloth. Her eyes are black shoe buttons. She has long arms and legs with a firmly cotton stuffed body. She has a modified hourglass figure. Her arms and legs are jointed. She is sewn into her fl...

This doll kind of makes you bite your lip. She is very old, worn, hand sewn and mellowed to the color beige. Her dress is a soft cotton that used to be blue and tan, she used to have a face, she used to have hair before many haircuts now the velvet band that anchored her hair to her head has only a few spears here and there. She wears heavy wool homemade boots with heavy cotton tan socks and pleated cotton bloomers with the brown and blue ticking visible at her knees and hips. Her dress is sewn ...

This is a wonderful all original painted face cloth doll. Her face is oil painted with a flare so the maker had some real talent. The paint is original and shows crackle on the paint surface. Her head is the style that the seam goes ear to ear and the top of the head is gathered to give fulness to the back of the head. I have seen this before but it isn't a common technique and is a very nice way to accomplish a more rounded head. She has a forced sit but she will sit. She is all hand sewn as ar...

This lovely antique black cloth doll with a simple pencil face is stuffed with rags. I can't remember ever having another black doll with a pencil face. Usually the material is too dark for a pencil face to show. Her body is all original and hand sewn. Her clothes are as found when I bought her. Her top is a knit long john shirt made for a very young child and her skirt is a wonderful antique skirt in soft shades of brown and blue and yellow and green. She is in very good condition with just we...
