This little old doll just called out to me on a recent treasure hunt because she is a unique spool doll. Made by a Mennonite woman in years past, she is assembled on a wooden spool of black thread and a wooden rod (or spoon?) plus has old covered wire type arms. She is primitive in her "look" wearing a prairie dress of red calico, a country type bonnet and accents of black ruffled trim. She is about 10" tall and shows wear to her outer garments which are faded in areas. Her silk type fabric face is melting in areas in the forehead and above one eye where batting can be seen. I considered putting another face on her but realize that collector's often prefer "as is". Her underskirt is skillfully sewn with cutwork and white on white floral designs. In her "Little House on the Prairie" Sunday Best outfit including purse, she is a neat addition to your doll collection.
