Not all black dolls have black bodies. Some of the best dolls I have had were dolls that the maker took an old rag doll and gave the doll a black head. In the Jim Crow era, it became common in the north for mothers to teach their children about the plight of African Americans, by making a black doll for them. So mothers even ones that were not really skilled at sewing were making black dolls. Putting a black covering over a rag doll was one of the easiest ways...

David Anthony
This highly desirable bisque headed doll was made by the famed German doll making firm JD Kestner. It is model 171 which came in several sizes, of which we believe this is the largest, made c. 1900. Although I measure it nearly 30 inches, some give its height as 28-30 inches. With its considerable height, we consider it a natural for certain decorating themes and scenarios - and its great age is no liability...

She is firmly packed with rags and cotton, how can I tell, she is very heavy and doesn't give much when you squeeze her. Rags are dense and heavy, cotton is lighter and can be pushed more easily into small places like arm and legs and feet and gives more when compressed. She has a great pencil face with eyes way at the top of her face. She is old and played with and her dress reflects all of that, see pictures for shredding material...

Ruby is powerful looking with a wonderful shaped face and nose and chin. Her face is drawn with sepia ink. Her hair is also done with ink. The same ink and the same era in script is the name Ruby on the middle of her back. See picture. Her head is large and I have had a number of dolls with this shaped head both black and white cloth dolls. It makes me think that maybe this type of doll was shown in women's magazines in the 1880's with patterns and directions on how to make them. She has a very ...

Early cloth doll with a faded pencil face, a great heavy linen body and all hand sewn. She has stitched defined fingers and is jointed at her shoulders and hips. She has as found clothing that is very nice, but brings a smile to my face. Her dress is inside out and I didn't even realize until I started taking pictures. I know why some child did it because the lining is much more colorful that the soft cream calico dress. The line is a red check cotton with a blue check waist band. Her body is al...
