This doll is from a collection in Maine. She is stockinette that was originally early polished cotton and was recovered 50 t0 75 years ago. So she is all original just recovered. This is not that uncommon if the doll was valued it was repaired. Old black fabric dye had iron oxide that was corrosive and weaken fabric. It is why this face has some holes. Her face has beautiful embroidery, the nose has to be the fanciest I have ever seen...

This big lollipop head black cloth doll with her sweet hand made dress and two buttons for eyes still manages to have a persona. She has a stuffed cotton body, jointed arms and legs, stitch defined fingers and large feet pointing left. (When I see that my mind thinks, she is signaling for a left turn.) Her red dress has little red trim around the bottom and around her neck. She is 19" tall but doesn't feel like a big doll. She is a funny little character, as found. Circa 1890-1900

This early topsy turvy doll very nice appeal to those that like dolls with love patina. Both faces have raised noses and some wear with more on the white side than the black side. The black doll has a window pane red fabric that is a tomato red with yellow lines and the white side has a wonderful blue fabric with white stars. She has had lots of hours of play and the aging from it is just the best. She displays well a single doll with white of black side...

This is a really nice early 1870 rag doll with an embroidered face. I am partial to the U shaped nose that some early cloth dolls have and this is a nice example. She has black tufted wool eyes and black embroidered eyebrows. Her mouth is a mauve floss with a true to shape lips. Her hair is black velvet and shows nice wear. Her arms are attached but her legs are continuous. Her body is the hour glass shape of the 1800's and is stuffed very firmly with cotton...

This is a wonderful old blue denim doll body all hand sewn. It is not the modern denim but it is denim and nicely faded and great shade of blue. It is stuffed firmly with cotton. For those of you who don't get it, I understand, but for us that do, this is a great one. We don't make them into dolls, we like them just as they are sitting on a shelf. (I think I hear you laughing.) 19" C. 1880

This is a doll that looks like she could keep up with her brother and maybe even run faster and jump higher. Her dress is worn her legs are skinny and the bottom of her pantaloons are cut off and a bit ragged. Her arms are long and dirty, her feet are bare and her blue eyes are faded from the sun. She is jointed and limber her hair is golden and she is a delight to hold in one hand. She is 15" tall, all hand sewn and C. 1880

What was the mother thinking when she sewed the face of this big wonderful rag stuffed doll. I think she had the cloth in her lap and stitched away on the face with it sideways on her lap. It does look a little straighter when she is sideways. Well you can't have her displayed on her side so her face is what it is, sweet and a little outrageous. The stitching is lovely and the colors are soft, her smile is engaging. She has never had hair. Her body is curvy with smaller waist and quite wide hips...

I like Amish dolls and I have had several that I really liked but I like this one the best. Her face and body are made out of a hand knit sock or maybe it was a big square knit cloth, I don't know but it is the best golden brown color and the stitch is big enough to see the texture of it. Her dress has the same golden brown color to it as well as her shear bonnet that has aged to sort of that same color...

Not often do I get a doll that has documentation of the maker, this doll does. She is all original with a red calico dress and bandana, white apron, petticoat and bloomers. Her body and legs are made of wood and she has big flat shoes that probably allowed her to stand alone but she is old now and doesn't do that well. I am trying not to relate to that! On the bottom of her shoe, written in nice script is, Mrs. Jefferson Davis at Louis at New Orleans, La. She has in her right hand a handmade a...

This is a great cloth doll with watercolor/ink painted face done with a lot of detail including the line drawn hair that I am very fond of. She is all hand sewn, rag stuffed and is heavy for her size. Her clothes are nice but not original to her. She is 21" tall, sits nicely and has the best blue eyes and pink cheeks. She has on a tan and light brown calico dress with a blue check apron over it, both are hand sewn. She was made circa 1890.

This darling stump doll dressed in a brown calico dress and a velvet mop hat is very put together, everything fits just right. Her stump is tied in the middle for a waist but she never had attached legs. Her body bends at the middle so she can sit and be held easily by a little hand. She is 14" to the bottom of her dress and is 11" to the bottom of her firmly stuffed stump. Circa 1900

This dolls face makes me think of an old black and white photograph. There is a lot of gray, and cream colors with a touch of blue for her eyes and brown eyebrows and brown curly hair on her forehead. Her face is skillfully painted and with a solemn quiet feeling about her. She is a firm heavy cotton stuffed doll. She is a very interesting construction with a six gore shoulder plate. Probably not anything is original but she is wearing shoes and stockings, bloomers, flannel petticoat, cotton dre...
