Antique Vintage Dutch Boy Doll Composition & Cloth C1900?:
I am listing a bunch of dolls for a friend. They appear to be from 1900-1950. I don't know much about them. Please e-mail questions early. If you win more than one of the dolls, I will send you a combined invoice to save you money on shipping.
This doll is about 13" tall. I'm not sure exactly what composition is, but this stuff does not seem to be plastic or ceramic. From it's construction, you can tell it has some age. We are guessing about 100 years old, or circa 1900. The head, hands and shoes are made of this composition material and they all have some cracking. One of the shoes has a little chunk missing. The clothing looks original. The buttons are made of shell, although one of them looks like a replacement because it has 4 holes for the thread and the other 2 buttons have only 2 holes. The clothing is dirty and stained. No maker's marks that I can find.On Jul-31-13 at 06:25:16 PDT, seller added the following information:
Just got an e-mail identifying this doll as a "1915 F & B (Effanbee) Pouting Bess doll".
