Miss Fannie Turgeon’s Memories In Cloth Doll Ivy Signed Dated Donna Gilbert 1994
This pretty doll's name is Ivy and she is signed by Donna Gilbert and dated 1994 on her back. The doll's head, hands, and feet are made of ceramic or porcelain while the rest of the doll is made from cloth. The head is intentionally crazed to give the doll an antiqued look. She is dressed in a long muslin gown with ribbon tied in a bow at the waist with matching long pantaloons. She measures about 10 from top of head to feet. She’s in excellent condition with no flaws I can find. Has her original hang tag: Miss Fannie Turgeon’s Memories In Cloth Designed and Handcrafted in Mora, Minnesota USA on one side and Ivy Signed and dated intended for the adult collector and not recommended for children on the other side. Some background information on Miss Fannie Turgeon's memories in cloth dolls: in 1986 Donna Gilbert started a small cottage industry in Mora, Minnesota. She made dolls and samplers. They were made of all cloth or composition and cloth. They were featured at the Museum of Folk Art, NY, Boston Museum of Fine Art, Country Living and many other shops and magazines.
