American Cloth Dolls and Their Things
Welcome to this happy site. I love cloth dolls, 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. 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 the dolls very sensitively. I will do what I can to make your purchase a pleasure. I hate shipping costs and try to keep them under my cost. Please enjoy my finds, and welcome to the club !
3.5" x 8" x 2.5" deep. Years ago, I bought this wonderful 19th c handkerchief box from Stephen and Douglas , and I imagined a little girl, at a birthday or Christmas, finding it and opening it with delight. So, inside, where I placed them, are two adorable china dolls, one from the early 19th c, missing her blouse and one foot, and the other, from about 1850, with everything intact. The whole package is amazing. I have often put it under the feather tree and it brings old festivities to life in the most endearing way. 2 photos.
Price: $350. for all.

Hair is unravelled yarn, missing in spots. Her full-leg mauve stockings are worn at the toes. c 1880. 2 photos.
c 1890-1910. Made of black cotton, she has a wonderful face with feather-stitched eyebrows, satin-stitched mouth and shoe-button eyes. Dress is a pink faded cotton in a very rare print of buttons and bows. Hair is unravelled greyish yarn and she has funny little stockinette shoes. Cap is black grosgrain, striped silk lined, with velvet ribbon accents and original ties. Dress and bonnet are perfect, but not original. Previous owner added shoes. 2 photos.
