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...

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...

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...

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...

This nice 15" black doll is very nice. She has the most intricate face with very nice sewing. She does have some melting of the top layer, I have a close up picture that is actually much closer that your eye would see in person. It is like she is under a magnifying glass. So she doesn't look that bad when she is just sitting in the room. She has on perfectly fitting clothes that are antique and I have to think they are original...

The face on this rag doll couldn't be more understated. Just some deepening of color for eyes, nose and mouth. She has a solid body that feels like it is stuffed with rags. Her arms end in little flat fabric with stitches for defined fingers but no stuffing, does the job with no big deal. She has on a faded red calico dress with a black and white calico apron. The dress is a little long but fits her nicely. Her arms and legs are jointed so she sits well. She is 12" tall and is circa 1890.

She is 14" tall with a cute little figure and is living life with her eyes wide open, with the help of jet buttons. The mother that made this was no shrinking violet. I bet she put on some great birthday parties. She even painted on the boots. She is all hand sewn, has stitched defined fingers, pointy feet and a very nice shaped body. Her dress comes down below her feet a couple of inches. She is cotton stuffed rather firmly and is jointed shoulders and hips so sits nicely. She is circa 1900-192...

Boy dolls are just hard to find, fewer were made but when found they are more likely to have good clothes. Boys liked policeman, soldiers, construction workers and sailors. This great sailor is 21" tall, has a nicely embroidered face, is all hand sewn, has the four seam head and has really nice hands with fingers and thumbs. He is very firmly stuffed with cotton. His clothes fit him perfectly. There is the dark blue wool jacket and matching short pants, a sweet buttoned undershirt, white socks a...

This 13" needle sculpture painted black doll is so much nicer than most. Someone spent a lot of time hand sewing and painting her features. She has ears and yarn hair sewn on but spotty at this point. She has a curvy little stockinette body. Her homespun, (really homespun) butterscotch checked dress even has a pocket in it. She is cotton stuffed pretty firmly. Her hands have long thumbs and stitched defined fingers. She sits easily. I think it is possible that her dress is original. Over her dre...

This dear sweet cat is just so nice if you can see past her condition. She is very happy and content and still has a great look. She is hand sewn and hand embroidered with the tiniest of stitches. She has cotton stuffing. I think she could be mended but considering the way she looks she is really pretty stable. She is life sized 14" long and is probably 50 or 60 years old.

This little stocking doll has the most amazing eyes. I have owned her for many years and every time I look at her my mind says, starry starry eyes. I guess the maker just couldn't decide when to stop. With all the stitching for the eyes then you look to her mouth, one little line and then a square for her chin. Just too much. She even has ears and all of this on a 10" doll. She is packed really firmly with cotton and is a rather rugged doll for her size. At some point I put this dress on her bu...

This is a very special black doll. She is 16" tall, is rag stuffed and heavy. She has woeful stitched face with small pearl button eyes. Her arms are jointed but her legs are not but she sits really easily. She is wearing an old red wool dress with lace at the bodice and trim around the neck and hem. She is sewn in but you can see she is wearing a fine knit onesie underneath. She has little recovered hands, someone cared enough to cover them. She has holes, the dress has holes, she is amazing. ...

This doll looks so much like a friend of mine from many years ago, her name was Tooty. (I always thought it was given to her because she always tooted her own horn) She was always the one with the good heart that worried about everyone else. She was always well put together, always in a rush and always free with advice, of course in your best interest. I wonder where she is now...not. So this Tooty is quiet, she is hand and machine sewn. Her clothes are sewn on, her arms and legs are jointed an...
