This 12 ½ inch tall doll was a souvenir for the UFDC Region 10 Convention in 1995. She was created by doll artist, Kathy Redmond. The doll has a porcelain shoulder head, arms, and lower legs with a cloth body. The doll has molded and painted facial features and hair. The hair, with individually painted brush strokes, is decorated with a white snood and glazed black bow. The decorated bodice includes a lace collar and luster painted brooch. The back of the shoulder plate includes the doll’s number (153) as well as the Redmond kitty logo and, in raised lettering, “Jo Region 10//1995.” The doll is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The cotton cloth body is quite clean and sturdy. The porcelain has no chips, cracks, or repairs. Jo wears white cotton lace trimmed underclothing and a solid blue and blue print cotton dress. The black slippers are painted and the doll wears a metallic gold bracelet on her left wrist. Kathy Redmond is known and admired for her artistic and beautiful creations that depict historical and literary characters. Jo is one of the daughters in Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, “Little Women.”
