Black Doll with Hand Stitched Features Darling Dress
This charming 1930's black doll, available for adoption, has personality plus and would be a perfect addition to your collection. She has turkey red hand stitched facial features with lustrous mother of pearl button eyes that seem to catch the light and your attention! She is wearing a red, black and white printed bandana that is stitched to the top of her head.
There are some lose threads near her "so called non-existent ears" that may be a clue she once had earrings. The body is made from a black sateen fabric that is in excellent condition! Her dress sports large folk art swirls with subdued colors of deep cornflower blue, oyster white and soft crimson. The neckline of the dress is hand stitched up in turkey red thread. However the bottom and sleeves are machine done. There is some staining on the front and back near the top and in the middle of the back as referenced in several close up images. This area of the fabric is stiffer than the rest of the cotton. There is also some light staining on both arms as show in images 8 & 9. She is wearing matching little pants as shown in images 10 & 14 that have been hand stitched at the waist using a running stitch. There are no tears or holes in the dress. However the stitching has separated on the edge of her left hand that reveals a peek at the inside stuffing as shown in image 10.
Her little shoes have seen better days, (see images 11 & 12) as she has been walking so long to find a forever home! There are no odors present and she is ready to be displayed as soon as you receive her!
Overall her condition is very good and she certainly does show well! I can envision displaying her in a Childs chair or grouped in a basket with other wonderful dolls that will be cherished and enjoyed by everyone!
She stands 13 1/4" Tall (8" Tall in a sitting position), measures 7 1/2" across her arms @ the widest point and 10" across her dress at the bottom.
