Thought I would share what I know so far about this little doll. See my earlier post for more photos: little doll
Doll Identification Questionnaire:
1. Length: 10 inches Circumference of head: 7 1/4 inches
(head about 2 1/2 inches and body 7 1/2 inches)
2. Material of the head and arms: Composition (paper/wood pulp molded then painted)
The head appears to have a flange neck. The torso material comes up high and covers it.
3. Doll’s body (torso and legs) made of cloth; firm body and legs;
possibly cotton or linen – three tones – torso light, legs beige, feet brown;
legs are separate from torso and attached with disc and wire.
There is a blue ink stamp on the back of torso that looks like the #9.
4. Arms are composition and attached to torso with wire. Flesh colored paint is peeling. The hands have four
fingers together and a thumb.
5. Face has black painted side-glancing eyes; painted eyelashes top only; sweet expression;
a watermelon smile (single line) with dimples; no molded lips; small nose.
The eyebrows are not molded; there may be a faint single line of brow paint over each eye.
6. Hair molded slightly on head. There are three holes: one on top and above each molded ear.
There are small pieces of blond material, possibly mohair on the head. Not sure if this is
original to doll or from a later wig that was removed.
7. Only clothing: white flannel shorts or underwear,.8. Condition of Doll: crack across top of head; grazing on face; paint peeling off arms; discoloration
to cloth body. I found a photo of my doll’s face at the Doll Reference Online. The size is not the same and a few variations in the stats, so I’ll leave that for another post. I’ll be checking other reference books too. Did you know that you can access the public library online, check the catalog, place a ‘Hold’ and have the books delivered to your local Branch? How cool is that!!!!!!!!!
