This 23 inch tall cloth doll, circa the late 19th century, was created in Oswego, New York, by Emma and Marietta Adams. The doll has an oil painted head with painted facial features and hair. Her cloth body is jointed at the shoulders, elbows, knees, and hips. The lower arms and legs are oil painted also. The doll wears antique clothing including pantaloons, a chemise, a print dress, and a lace trimmed bonnet. While the clothing is all antique, I believe the chemise may be original to the doll. The dress does have some small holes and tears to the fabric. Miss Columbia is in very good clean condition with some wear to the paint on the side of the face and the hair. The facial features are still in good condition with no repaint to the doll. The rubber stamped identification has faded from the back of the body but this is definitely an earlier doll with the face painted by Emma. These early American primitive oil painted dolls are so charming and have such a wonderful history that I am always charmed by them.
