This 14 inch tall doll, circa the late 1920s, was manufactured by E.I. Horsman & Company. The doll, while named Peterkin, was dressed and sold as both a girl and a boy. This girl has a composition flange neck head, arms, and legs. She is jointed at the shoulders and hips with a cloth body. The doll has molded and painted blonde hair and facial features that resemble the Campbell Kids model. She is in good condition with minor crazing and cracking and no repaint. There is typical chipping to the tips of the fingers and a cloth repair patch on the right shoulder. Miss Peterkin wears a red wool skirt, red wool knit jacket (with some holes), and vintage shoes and socks. She also has a white cotton lace trimmed petticoat that may be original to her. She is marked with raised lettering on the back of her neck that reads, “E.I. H. Co. INC.” I always am attracted to this happy healthy child doll.
