Offering a wonderful doll with provenance. This handmade circa early 1940's doll was owned/made by Edna Pritchard who was active in the doll world and a contributing writer to 'Toy Trader' magazine. She is made of cotton muslin with yarn hair and embroidered face. She has nylon stocking and black felt shoes. Her dress is made of cotton voile/blue polka dot cotton with mother of peart buttons. Blue satin ribbons in her braided hair. So very sweet!
This special doll still retains a tag that reads: "PLAY DOLL CLASS. THIS IS THE DOLL THAT STARTED ME IN THE DOLL MAKING AND COLLECTING HOBBY. YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION TO DISPLAY. PROPERTY OF MRS. EDNA PRITCHARD HUBBARD OHIO RFD#2 BOX 26. NOT FOR SALE (Return Postage Enclosed in Letter)"
The doll resembles 'Dorothy' from the Wizard of Oz although she doesn't have the ruby slippers!
She measures 12" tall. Her dress does have some soiling from age. I will leave to her new owner to clean or leave as is.
