Vintage cloth black folk art doll with button eyes and adorable polka dot outfit. Made from black cotton sateen, this 17 girl is in excellent condition and dates from late 1930’s to early 1940’s. She wears a red cotton polka-dotted sleeveless dress, bonnet and booties. The little girl who received this as a gift and played with her was a careful child and we have almost nothing to report as flaws. The hair is unusual in that it is made of mohair- the kind that was used for teddy bears- and there is a slight loss of the mohair on the sides of the head. Embroidered nose and mouth with teeth. Although the clothing is removable, the string that acts to tie is very tight and I do not want to risk tearing it. Those booties are irresistible.
