This bold stockinette black doll is very likely all original. She has a great face that is shaped by the pinched nose and a slightly pinched chin. I don't recall seeing a pinched chin like that before. She has astrakhan hair covered with matching scarves on her head and around her bodice. She has a petticoat and pantaloons and a soft red calico dress over them. Her apron has a pocket with a hanky of the same material as her head and shoulder scarfs. She is well endowed with a matronly body...

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...

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...

This small pencil drawn face doll is all cotton stuffed, hand sewn, wonderful clothes, little pigeon toed feet with worn black socks. Her dress is lined with lace trim, under that she has a blouse and petticoat. The close-up camera shot sees her face as lighter and the pencil drawing darker than it really is. The other pictures are more true to her look. Her underclothes are as found and I put on her dress. She is missing the bottom half of her left arm...

This is an early heavy rag stuffed cloth doll with ink drawn features and sew through the cloth yarn hair. The yarn is the early homespun single twist and is very nice. She is all hand sewn, jointed shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. She has several layers of socks, the top layer is a wonderful blue linen pair. She came with her under clothes and I added her skirt. She is 20 " tall and is C. 1880

I think red is her favorite color, it becomes her. She is 24" tall but she is slight in stature so she doesn't feel or look that big. She has a painted face with the best smile. She has astrakhan hair but it is missing on the top, I am surprised she isn't wearing a hat. She is made with sateen cotton and her nose is applied and looks like it has been recovered with floss. She is cotton stuffed and is very nicely made and hand sewn...

I love dolls like this. They conjure up a whole story of hot summer days, dusty well packed earth, a big maple tree at the corner of the open porch that stretches across the front of the house. A little girl in a worn calico dress, no shoes and scratched little legs holding her doll sitting on the steps staring out in space on a hot summers day...

This pretty little doll is painted with heavy oil paint by a naïve hand that is very nice in a homey way. She has auburn red hair and big blue eyes. Her arms and legs are painted with the same paint and are solid and heavy. Her dress is as old as she is and is fragile but looks very nice on her. She is 18" tall and is circa 1910

This is a little special doll with the dearest oil painted face. She kind of looks like she has glasses on, but that is not the case. Some how for what reason I cannot fathom her eyes were cut out and they left the iris and pupil. She has a dear and sort of sad feeling about her. She needs some love and friends. She is 19" tall but looks and feels like a much smaller doll. The underpinnings look like they may be original and the dress is a nice blue calico that I put on her. She is circa 1890-19...

This doll has a very soft worn kind of look. Her face is mended right down the middle and the is darkening just below her shoe button eyes but she still has a very nice sort of sad soft look. I realized I had her dress on backward when I started to photograph her. She has a really nice pocket that she has been sitting on all these years. She is 24" tall. She is stuffed with cotton that has settled so she sits nicely even though her legs are continuous with her body. She makes a gentle statement....

This is a sweet faced little cloth doll with a pinched raised nose, button eyes, feather stitched eyebrows and pink floss mouth. I think she was a white doll first and covered about 1910 with black sateen, see picture of her legs. She has a sturdy body, simple arms and legs that do bend for sitting. She has on a blue calico dress, a red white and blue patriotic skirt over it and sewn on red felt boots that are quite remarkable. She is 16" tall and is circa 1890. She has a classic little round fa...

This big topsy turvy is not the more academic type but is more down home country living. This was a smart mother who knew her limitations, she made the doll without arms. It suits the doll just fine. She has very nice faces with button eyes, no noses and an outline of a mouth. She is the type that feels more inviting for playing and certainly shows has been. Her condition is good but not great. She has a hole in the back of her skirt, thank goodness it is the back and she has age related stainin...
