Indian Nodder Doll:
A large and unusual nodder in four sections giving very lifelike movement. Obviously patterned after an Indian Diety, it is made of composition and the detailing is very complex.
Black Velvet Doll:
This is an all velvet black doll with features painted in white, c. 1875, from a New England family. 13" tall
This is the earliest version of a lovely Babyland ragdoll, hand-coloured on silk net, fine detail and complete in good condition. 15" tall
Canvas Presbyterian Doll:
One of the best examples of the so-called "Presbyterian" doll that I have seen. These were made by groups of woman and sold for the church. Hand painted oil on canvas, I think of these as folk paintings. c. 1880-1900 16" tall
