Antique Dolls Door Of Hope Orphanage Chinese Man And Woman:
‘Door of Hope’ Orphanage – A pair of dolls, man and woman, pre 1920. Very rare and collectable. You won't find any others on ! Selling as a pair, they will not be split up. Chinese Door of Hope dolls were taken to the US before the 1920's by the American Baptist Missionary, Rebecca Cloud-Stewart. On her many trips from China back to the US to visit family and friends, she took the dolls as samples to sell and raise money for the Door of Hope orphanage. These dolls, male and female, are 11 inches tall. The faces are slightly darkened with age and the clothes are a little faded from sunlight. They both have all of the original clothing layers. They are rare and collectable. They were appraised and valued recently by an expert at the Antiques Road Show. Realistic opening price.
