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...

This wonderful folky antique cloth doll is a hoot. She has a very simplistic round head with a suggestion of pencil drawn eyes, nose and mouth. She has a nicely shaped body, big outward turning feet but nothing compared to the size of her great carefully made hands. They are outstanding. She is stuffed gently with cotton so she has a squeezable body. She has on a blue calico dress with a petticoat under it. She has a funny hat plopped on her head. She is a real character...

This little 16" black cloth doll has button eyes and simple chain stitch nose and mouth. She is stuffed gently with rags and her arms and legs are straight forward with just rounded ends. She has a hint of the hair that used to be there, it is mostly around the top. Her legs have layers of stockings but I can see the original brown cloth at her hips so I think her original legs are under there. Her red calico dress is almost as worn as she is...

This cornfed down home girl is really sturdy, all hand sewn with firm strong stitches. She is made from feed sack. A lot of the feed sacks around the 1900's were advertised to have labels and print that would wash off with one washing, (Ultimate recycling). This was not one of those feed sacks. She is stuffed with rags. She had another face over this one and there maybe and older one under this one. Her hips are not jointed but she does do a pretty good forced sit...

This very nice cloth doll has a painted face like the more sophisticated dolls sold in the department stores. It could have been a homemade copied of a Baby Land Rag Doll. She has great rosy cheeks, cupid doll lips, big blue eyes and blond hair. She has painted on ears and her hair is parted in the middle. (Did you know that in 1800's girls hair was always parted in the middle and boys parted on the side. This help identify boys from girls in early portraits where boys and girls were dressed al...

This black doll has a nicely hand painted face that comes for a cottage industry in Georgia. Her face is done by a naïve hand but the colors and style are very nice. She has a tag on the inside hem of her dress that reads, Mammy 4. She is firmly stuffed with cotton and in really good condition with age discoloration and a tiny hole on her chin. I don't think she was ever played with. She is 15" tall. She is all original and hand made and has a wonderful face.

This is a very nice example of a black cloth broom doll. I don't get these very often and this one has the best face. The embroidery is densely stitched and she is quite early. She is wearing a blue calico dress that is faded and shows wear. There is a mend on her skirt that is crude but works. The top layer of black stockinette has weakness and some holes. See close-up pictures of her face. The bristles of the whisk broom allows her to stand without support. The handle of the broom goes up into...

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 ...

This terrific late 1800's hand sewn black doll is about as straight forward as you will find. The embroidered face is really nicely done with the stitched mouth slightly turned down. I think of him as a boy but it could easily be a girl. I bought this doll years ago and there were no clothes. I have tried this and that but I like it just as it is without clothes. I think this doll makes a statement without adornment. He is 16" tall and stuffed firmly with rags. He is circa 1890, all hand sewn ...
