This is an unusual 12 inch tall circa 1930s home made Folk Art black cloth doll with natural gourd base. She has an embroidered face with watermelon mouth, black glass button eyes and black unraveled fabric thread for hair. She is dressed in her original red and white floral cotton print dress with wide lace collar and white cotton apron. Her torso is connected at the bottom of the waist to the top of the gourd that was used for her base. The gourd base is filled with stones enclosed under stitched on cardboard, but not heavy enough to have been intended as a door stop.

Condition: I think her hands were originally stitched together in front as there is a little loose thread remaining on one hand. The gourd base is chipped along one edge. There is one small tear in her dress on the front side of the bodice.

This is a unique example of ethnic Folk Art dolls.
