This is an 14 inch Old Primitive Black Cloth Mammy Doll Handpainted Face Red Dress Cotton Stuffed C1930s. She dates to the 1930s or prior and was machine stitched. Black cloth dolls really look the best when dressed in red. This doll is no exception as she wears a red with white dots cotton dress (some fading in the front) and head scarf. Her full chest has been amply stuffed with cotton, while the body is black cotton which has lightened to brown at the exposed places. She is jointed at the shoulders and hips allowing her to sit and she has mitt hands with stitched fingers. Her face is all hand painted and she has a wear spot below her right eye.
