Leather doll, painted face, circa early 1900’s. In very good used, delightfully worn and patina-ed, loved condition. 12 inches tall, these dolls were patented by Gussie Decker in 1902-03, made by M.S. Davis Co. (Chicago) , and distributed by Butler Bros. Advertised as "Baby's First Doll" and were promoted as "Impossible for baby to hurt itself....one doll will do for several generations of children....Leather is very fine for a baby to chew on when teething". I cannot imagine what baby was going to do with the laces; doll survived, anyway. A small repair in front, very well done. Stuffed with cotton. These are rarely seen.
