This is a 19" Vintage C1940 Hand Made Raggedy Ann Doll in her Blue Cotton Dress. Her cotton body feels like it was stuffed with bits of foam that you could by in a bag and use to stuff toss pillows. So her body is springy. The stuffing under the clothing is soft and springy while the stuffing exposed more to the air has a bit of a crunch to it as you would expect when foam has aged. The embroidered facial features include eyebrows, individual underlashes, outlined triangle nose, heart shaped mouth, blue button eyes, and a big red smile. There is appropriate age staining and soiling to the body as you would expect most noticeably to the face and hands. She is fresh smelling. Her red-orange wool yarn hair is in a short do and is askew in the back while her red and white stripe legs go to the knee with the body fabric completing the leg and ending with black cotton feet. There are no pantaloons. The medium cobalt blue cotton dress is clean. it has a neck ruffle with very few gathers and has some very minor aging to the fabric as you would expect, and the white pinafore has some very mild aging as well. The pinafore elastic that went across the top has stretched.
