For sale is a really unique antique early 1900's (possibly a bit older) primitive folk art stump doll that I acquired from a sale in Ohio. Her head is cotton/linen, possibly homespun, and she has applied nose and ears, and the eyes and mouth have been made by cutting out some of the fabric, and adding black fabric behind for the eyes, and red for the mouth. She has unique rope fingers, white fur hair, wears a nice early black print fabric dress, and a red and black hat. The top of the hat is red with black stripes, and the brim is red with black crescent moons and stars. She also has a brown velvet belt around her waist, and is wearing a necklace with several dangles, including a snail shell, a small ring, and a metal advertising medallion that says "Snider's Homemade Catsup". The doll measures about 18" long, 5" wide, and 1 1/2' front to back from her nose. She is in antique condition, with overall surface dirt and signs of being played with, but no major issues. It should be noted that I'm not sure, but she may have had legs at one time. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a unique addition to your folk art doll collection!
