This is an Old Black White Topsy Turvy Doll Red Blue Calico Clothing Large Size 21 Inch Museum Deaccession. This wonderful large size 21 inch hand stitched black/white topsy turvy cloth doll was deaccessioned from the Boxford Historical Document Center Museum, Essex County Massachusetts. A cloth paper pinned to the dolls reads Mother-Daughter/May 11/ #2. The dolls have machine stitched, firmly cotton stuffed, cotton cloth bodies jointed at the shoulders with yarn hair and embroidered features. This is one of the largest topsy turvy dolls that I have had. The calico clothing is cotton and the dolls are appropriately clean. The eye embroidery is very detailed and the hands are mitt hands with thumbs.
