Vintage 12.5” Ethnic Composition Cloth-bodied Doll, circa 1920s-1940s, is available for your consideration.

This vintage 12.5” doll can be identified as ethnic even though her dress/costume is missing. Both the coloring and style of the hair, along with its skin coloring suggests that she may have been dressed in a South American, Mexican or Indian outfit. The black hair and deep brown braids are glued to her composition head. Her hair has separated in a couple places on her head which can easily be glued back into place.The composition shoulderhead has crazing and some separation in the shoulder seams. There are no identifying marks on the shoulderhead. The face is still nicely painted with flaking on the shoulderplate. The composition arms have almost no crazing. Although the arms are without much wear, the little finger on the right hand is partially missing. Since the hand is completely painted, the missing/broken finger may have been a manufacturing flaw.

The doll’s body and legs appear to be straw-filled. Metal wires/fasteners are used to attach the legs and arms to the body and to allow for movement. The arms seem to be connected on the same wire since they move together. The shorts/panties are attached to the back of the doll with a long thin nail/pin. The red “rouge” on the doll’s knees is an identifying trait of that era.

Quite an interesting doll…if I say so myself!
