This doll couldn't get much cuter. She is a tight package, stuffed with cotton, the clothes fit her perfectly, figuratively and otherwise. Her face is made as a separate piece of fabric like it was a second face but after looking carefully at her I think it is her original face and it was how she was made. She has on pantaloons, petticoat and calico brown and tan print dress. On her head she is wearing an old straw hat theat is coming apart a little but is so great on her...

This doll has talked to me for a while now. I listen to her and look and have learned more each day. She has the most wonderful worn leather face. I don't think she ever had features. If she had an ink face it would seem you could see a hint of a face. She didn't have an embroidered face, no holes. Maybe pencil...Growing up I loved dolls but all my dolls had faces. I didn't know about Amish doll back then so I don't know how I would have felt by a blank face...

What a cutie of a simple rag doll with embroidered face, broad chest and arms that ends in little fists. Now I think he is a little boy but his blue striped pants have a little lace trim so maybe a little girl. I do know that the mother that made him wanted to make sure the hat stayed on or maybe she picked it up one too many times off the floor and sewed the sucker on! It worked it is still there. He is firmly packed with rags and is solid and heavy. This is just a really pleasing little doll...

This is one of the nicest knitted boy dolls I have owned. The wool is a strong no nonsense wool that that if it was a sock the itch factor would drive you nuts. The knitting is very fine and tight and the design and colors are the best. He is 18" tall. His arms are attached at the shoulders. His legs are continuous but he does sit with just a little persuasion. He is 18" tall and is Circa 1890.

This fine black doll is in wonderful condition. Her face is embroidered and her eyes are jet buttons that are very effective and her hair is astrakhan (lambs wool used for trim on coats in the late 1800's). Her arms are attached at her shoulders, her legs are continuous but she sits easily. She is wearing an early black skirt, a black calico dress over the skirt, and then a red apron/skirt over the dress...

This is a wonderful folk art bottle doll with a big straight smiling mouth, button eyes and one celluloid hanging earring. She is wearing a slip and over that a great black print apron that wraps under and around her head and ties in the back. It certainly is a thrown together look that appears to have been on her a long time. The apron so goes with her face. A one of a kind face for sure. She is on her original weighted glass bottle, is 14" tall and is circa 1920.
