I have always really liked the black bottle doll doorstops. They are something I keep more than I sell. I am offering of few of mine for sale so here is the first one.
She is 13" tall, has button eyes, tear drop shaped nose with two little dots for nostril, and oval mouth that is open a little and maybe the red is for her tongue. To me she looks like she is singing her heart out while she looks to the heavens. She has embroidered ears that are priceless. She has a necklace that may have been added later. She is wearing a little faded calico dress with a little shawl on her shoulders and sweet little arms that hang down limply. She is on a bottle that is short and very big around that is covered with the stocking that terminates at the top of her head. The bottle is filled with sand and is very heavy. She has a couple of holes on her face but the face has two layers of black so it isn't that noticeable. Circa 1920
Just great folk art!
