At first glance she looks like one to me but a southern belle all dressed up in the 1880's would not ever consider putting forth anything resembling a scowl. To give her the benefit of the doubt it is more of a pensive look. Her bright blue eyes would sparkle with a smile but she is what she is. Her face is watercolor and ink and nicely done. She is 22" tall her body is all original with continuous legs so she has a forced sit, see photos...

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...

This little girl has fun and has just met the other one so we will see if they turn out to be good friends. She is heavy and old and is as found with a little rec calico dress, tan undies, tan socks and wool shoes missing the soles. (Odd and I have no idea what could have happened to them.) She has great lambs wool hair. The white that you see is part of the tanned leather.

I know that look, it says, I know what you are thinking and you better not say it! I wonder if she knows that I was going to comment on her hair-do? She is hand sewn and has a linen face and body that is cotton stuffed. Her dress looks like it has been on her forever. She has red high top shoes that are sewn on, nice under clothes and real hair that might be original. Her face has a very straight pinched nose, one long of red floss stitch for her mouth and pencil drawn eyes and eyebrows...

This really unusual black doll is from a Bucksport Maine attic and I am the second owner. There is so much to like about this doll but I want to comment on her dress. I believe it is original to her, it is two piece all hand sewn. The fabric is hand blocked and printed and it is nothing short of esquisit. See one of the pictures where her skirt is pulled up so you can see the back of the material. It is as saturated with the ink as the front...

Surprisingly this is and always has been a bottle doll door stop. She is beautifully dressed with layers of clothes. She has flax hair, and ink drawn face with a bit of a startled look. She has on a black hat with great posies across the front. I have had a few white doll doorstops but this is by far the best. She is 15" tall and is circa 1890.

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.

This doll looks right. She is hand sewn, rag stuffed with some cotton stuffing, very big folky mitten hands and the best brown and red calico dress. She had lots of patina, (the very nice word for accumulation of dirt and soil over the years). She has on a flannel petticoat under her dress and a pair of bloomers on inside out. Why they are like that I don't know but they look okay like that. Her shoulders are jointed but her legs are not but she sits from years of sitting...

This beauty is a one of a kind painted face doll is a great example of a talented mother or aunt hand sewing and painted the fabric on the head and face to provide their child with a doll that strongly resembled the bisque and china dolls found in department stores or bought from Europe. She is beautifully painted with no touch up or repair. She has some slight age discoloration that you would expect from a doll this age. Her body is sound with no splits or breaks...

I don't have many left from the earliest days of buying in the 1970's but this is one of them. He is a happy little guy made with a stockinette sort of fabric. His face is nicely embroidered with a fine floss and what looks like hundreds of stitches to make his eyes and teeth. His hair is animal pelts, lots of small pieces sewn onto his head with lots of stitches holding it on. You can see the leather back in lots of places, I think that was the way it was sewn on. He is as found. His pants are ...

This is a tiny wooden doll wearing her original clothes. She has on a golden brown silk dress with blue trim. Under her dress she is wearing a fabulous woolen petticoat with a white petticoat under that. She has wooden arms and no legs. I don't feel any attachment under her skirt just the wooden body but she likely had legs. She has original paint still on her head and face. Her silk dress is shredding on the skirt front exposing the great petticoat but the trim of the dress still is around ...
