Large 29” Cloth Doll with Oil Painted Face.,C.1900
Flat facial feature includes pretty-blue eyes, a finely contoured mouth and appropriate nose, along with painted blonde hair with nicely painted and detailed curls. Minor paint cracking on the head here and there, but not affecting appearance or facial features.
The facial features remind us of the early commercial cloth dolls, with the painter/maker likely influenced by "Miss Columbia" or the early painted Babyland Rags. While not an exact copy, a charming "cousin" of the country ilk. Cotton body (machine stitched) with sturdy oil painted head, face and hands with articulated fingers and thumb. Feet are not painted, nor do they have stitched or articulated toes. Wearing a nicely fitted undershirt, chemise with trim, and slip with fine trim. Needing just the right dress, shoes, and hat to give her right finishing touches. Accompanied by a note " Doll was given to Eleanor Smith by Great Aung Florence Flanders when Eleanor was under 10 years old. It was 40 years old then".
