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. She has big fat hands with short fingers and nicely formed feet. She is packed full with rags that shows through a little on her arms and legs. Sitting isn't a problem she is jointed at the hips and shoulders. Under her floral print dress and blue checked apron she has on a petticoat and pantaloons, everything is of the period or older, 1920 back to 1890. She is not quite as anemic looking in person, she is more of a tan than white with some age spots mostly on her face. She is a great folky early rag doll. 21" and Circa 1920
