Ella

22-1/2" tall one-of-a-kind black cloth child, "Ella" is a singular creation who expresses wisdom and joy. Details include construction from black sateen, with a noble profile achieved by a center seam down her face, while further stitching achieves the look of smile lines.
In addition, Ella has a stitched floss mouth, nostrils, eyes and eyeliner, while a hint of ear was achieved by side seams in the head. Her large hands featured defined fingers and a thumb achieved by top-stitching, while her feet remain simple, but they do wear really fun olive green oilcloth shoes.
Ella's cranberry red wool dress is accented with off-white soutache, while a classic straw hat seems the perfect choice up top.
A nice piece of folk art, and as American as apple pie.

Amazing personality can be achieved by the art of needle sculpting, evidenced by this pair of cloth dolls from the company of the artist Bernard Ravca. Stockinette was manipulated and then painted to create detailed faces. These dolls are clearly labeled "Made in France", which would date them between 1924 and 1939.
The detailed costumes denote the two as French peasants – her tag reads "Bourguignonne" and his reads "Picard". Accessories include a walking stick for him and she carries a strand of flax ready for spinning.
The overall condition of the two is quite good, with just fading to the fronts of both dolls.
Note that these dolls are shown on stands – something rarely seen on this site. The stands are impressed "Kimport Dolls" and are rarities in their own right.

She measures: 10-1/2" tall
He measures: 9-3/4" tall

$325.00 for the two.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's a rarity, a very early handmade Topsy-Turvy which probably dates circa 1860s. In the typical style, here we have a black mammy doll on one end of the double doll, and a white child on the other.
Both constructed from sateen, embroidered facial features decorate each doll. The black doll wears a beautifully constructed dress and kerchief from red and cream polka dot cotton, while the other child wears a cream silk dress (showing distress) with a matching ruffled "bonnet."

Measures: 16" long, overall

Miss One of a Kind 1920

 

Isn't doll-life unfair? Some dolls were handed out very little beauty, and others, like the ravishing one shown here are the lucky ones! Features of this one of a kind cloth creation include a softly stuffed body with hinged arms and legs, stitched facial features including detailed eyes, a needle-sculpted nose, and stitched full lips and even upper teeth visible! A wooly wig is kept in place by a stylish crocheted hair net complete with chic tassel, and matching booties coordinate perfectly. The pale blue cotton dress features contrasting white trim at the sleeves and neck, while a sash pulls it all together – so to speak.
“It's beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.”

Measures: 17-1/2" tall
