American Cloth Dolls and Other Things

Kathy Schoemer | PO Box 42, Walpole, NH 03608 | 603.756.2985 |

Welcome to this happy site, now incorporating our cloth dolls and other finds, all under one roof. I love cloth dolls in a very special way, and take great joy in buying and selling them. Honestly? I would keep them all, but it is an addiction and I am everlastingly grateful to have found kindred spirits who love them as I do. My husband loves them as well. Go figure. He raced cars and jumped horses, but cannot bear to see some of the dolls leave us. As we make discoveries in other areas, we will add those things to the dolls. One caveat: I do not like returns. Please ask as many questions and request as many photos as you like. I will gladly give you undivided attention. I price very sensitively, based on cost. I will do what I can to make your purchase a pleasure. Shipping costs have become a burden to all of us; we strive to keep them totally fair. We accept personal checks and PayPal, and offer Lay-A-Way as well. Please enjoy my finds ! Living with antiques is one of life's greatest pleasures.

Very Early Topsy/Turvey.

19". I have never had one this early ( Civil War period) and handmade. There are a few spots and support stitches on the white face, and a tear on the black one. The wasp waist is so tiny that it has very little stuffing, but this is a rare example, with folky stitched features and original clothing. 2 photos. From a beloved NH collection. 2 photos.

Price: $365.
