This cloth doll has a beautiful painted face done with a heavy oil base paint. The features are still in perfect condition. The hair is a head wrap with a textured fabric and is sewn on. The arms and legs are painted black halfway up and her hands are mitten shaped with stitch defined fingers. She is firmly packed and very heavy. Her red dress doesn't quite meet at the neck so for sure it is not original but is an old antique handmade red dress that looks good on her...

This early black doll has an intricate face that is pieced and I think was made that way. She has small early button eyes, a raised nose and very finely stitched mouth. She has several layers of hair with a very nice red polka dot head wrap. Her dress is sewn on and fits nicely but is not as early as the doll, but her petticoat and pantaloons look original. She has stitch defined fingers, nicely formed feet and has an early hour glass shaped body...

This is a very nice better than average peg doll. She has a nicely carved nose and carefully painted face. Her body is completely wood with nicely finished edges, shapely legs and carefully pegged wooden joints. The netting on her dress is fraying but the silk dress seems in good condition. Her hair style is nice with the hair dropping down the side of her face and the rest painted to look like it is pulled up in back...

This is the a wonderful early cloth doll with the tiniest little pencil face drawn in the middle of her big round face. I think she is all original except for her straw hat. The dress is shredding but by no means falling apart. She has wonderful layers of petticoats and two pair of pantaloons. The wool trim on her dress and her shoes have suffered the fate of moths but they are still hanging in there...

This little pencil face doll is a nice little package. Even though she is 18" tall she presents herself as a small doll.

I am telling my age but this doll would be the best at using the mangle. She has the shoulders of a football player and her arms are mightly long. (For all of you younger than I), A mangle or wringer is a mechanical laundry aid consisting of two rollers in a sturdy frame, connected by cogs and, in its home version, powered by a hand crank or electricity. Wikipedia) My mother had the electrical kind and my younger brother put his finger in it and peeled the skin off half his finger. It was fair...

This little 1890's cloth doll with a happy pencil face is hand sewn and is wearing simple clothes that are cut and basted together in the most elementary way. She is the kind of doll that got thrown away more often than not but this one survived a lot of spring cleanings and it makes her all the more special. She is circa 1890 and is 11" tall.

I love dolls like this. They conjure up a whole story of hot summer days, dusty well packed earth, a big maple tree at the corner of the open porch that stretches across the front of the house. A little girl in a worn calico dress, no shoes and scratched little legs holding her doll sitting on the steps staring out in space on a hot summers day. (It isn't hard for me to take a little mini vacation inside of my head does it.) So the note attached to her says she was from the Jimmie Cramer coll...

This rag stump doll is all original other than the bonnet I put on her. She has a drawn pencil face. her dress goes up into her head in the back so she was rolled and wrapped and part of the material in the dress is in the head. Maybe to keep the dress on. She has a fine piece of linen over the cotton for her face and it wraps around and is sewn on the back of her head. See picture and also note the brown thread that may have held on some kind of hair. Her arms are rolled and are attached to her...

This doll speaks for herself but a picture is worth thousand words. She is outstanding in the world of pencil face dolls. Her face is subtle but dear with large round eyes, straight mouth and two line nose. She is cotton stuffed and has an extreme hourglass body. She is all hand sewn homespun linen and even with all that patina on her face it is her second face. Her arms have been recovered several times and her hands have wear and some loss. I didn't take off her bodice or bloomers but they als...

This doll is an old friend and I am very fond of her. She has a center seam face and ears, both features I really like in the homemade dolls. She has real hair braided down her back. Often times this was the child's hair and a way to talk them into a short haircut for summer. She has a very nice body with a bum made for sitting. She is firmly cotton stuffed, jointed arms, shoulders, hips and knees. She is dressed in an age appropriate dress but it is a little tight and is making do and looks gr...

A rolled homespun linen doll wearing an indigo blue calico dress is quite outstanding. She is 11" tall and is a stump doll, never had legs. She has a simple pencil face with wear right at her nose and to the left of her right eye. She is all hand sewn. Her dress is treadle machine sewn and is probably not original but is a wonderful period dress and the same era as she is. The neck of the dress may have had a collar as there is unfinished edge at her neck. She has nicely rolled simple arms. She ...

It is brimmed with velvet ribbon and the neck and on the homemade belt around his waist. He has woolen shoes on his feet that are also attached. Over this he has a charcoal wool sweater that keeps him warm. It has a hole in one sleeve bu...

I really like dolls with center seam faces and when they have ears it is even better. This folkypainted face boy doll has the funniest expression. He seems to be saying, yes I did it and no I am not sorry but I won't do it again. He has big mitten hands, a very nicely formed body and he is jointed at the hips, knees, shoulders and elbows. He is stuffed pretty firmly. The clothes certainly are not original, he has been played with way too much to have original clothes but they fit and look good. ...

This little 14" doll is short and wide and compact. She has a raised nose, embroidered blue eyes and a little pink floss mouth. I think she looks like she is saying, Nope I don't want to do that today. She has on the nicest leather boots that have to be original, they fit her like a glove. Her top layer of stockinette is shredding in areas but there is a least one more layer under it that is the same color so it is not the detracting. Sewn onto her head is a crocheted hat that I think is meant t...

Very unusual painted face character doll with the best laughing eyes. So many dolls are either very pretty or have a very neutral face with a straight line for a mouth, this doll leaves nothing to the imagination, she is down right giddy. How cool is that! She is painted with oil paint on fabric with most of the fabric showing through, not from wear but the way she was painted. She had great painted copper colored hair that is painted in swirls. She has a chunky firmly stuffed with cotton body. ...

A late 19th C cloth doll with a stitched face and big mitten hands. She is dressed as found in a blouse with cut off sleeves and a very pretty age appropriate brown calico skirt. she has on an antique petticoat and pantaloons and black socks covering her original feet. It looks like she had a face over this face but it isn't with her now. She had an eye missing so I put in to black pins. One pin over the original stitched eye and the other for the missing eye. I like everything about her. She is...

She is all hand sewn linen with attached arms and legs as well as jointed elbows and knees with two lines of stitching across so they really bend nicely...see picture.
