Offering a charming authentic Antique MAINE Black Stockinette Puppet Doll. She was handmade in the 1800's and has the most charming hand embroidered expression with smiling face! She is a highly unusual puppet on a heavy wooden dowel stick. She wears her original cotton calico dress trimmed in lace with matching bonnet. I am not certain if the apron is original. Found in Maine. She has some tearing to cloth and you can see where the color has changed in spots due to old age! Her floral calico dress has some tears and has faded to a pretty blue and pink
Her stuffing is firm and lumpy with a few worn spots as you would expect from an authentic doll. This highly collectible doll is delightful and always brings a smile to my face!
Measures 14.5" tall to end of dowel and 16" to tip of dress.
