I recently rescued this 12" tall cloth topsy turvy doll and discovered it to be a Bruckner 1901 Patented doll who has had some alterations over the years. When found, the dolls had lost their skirt and original bonnets...luckily, I happened to have a wonderful antique blue plaid doll skirt that is reversible and fits just fine. The white faced doll also needed a bonnet which I replaced. The kerchief style wrap on the black face doll head was there when found though I do not believe it is original to her. At any rate, both heads are marked with Pat. pending or the 1901 date, have layers of molded cardboard under the mask face and retain a great look! I can tell this doll was loved as there are repairs to the white face doll's blouse in back, an area of soiling on her one hand and normal wear to the faces...do not forget, this dolly is over 100 years old!
