Polly Heckewelder Moravian Church Cloth Rag Doll

This 18 inch doll, circa the late 20th century, is a wonderful more recent example of the cloth benefit dolls created by the Ladies Sewing Society of the Moravian Church. This type doll was named after a pioneer girl who was the daughter of an early Moravian missionary of the late 1800s. These dolls have been made since the Civil War era to first benefit wounded soldiers to later church projects. This newer doll maintains the wonderful dedication to sewing excellence as the earlier dolls. She has a hand drawn face and hair with a pink cotton gingham dress, white cotton underclothing, and a white lace trimmed pinafore. She has a white cotton body jointed at the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. The doll is in unplayed with condition. If you have an antique or vintage example of a Moravian doll, this would be a great complement to your collection and a wonderful study comparison.
