Vintage Large Black Original Folk Art Ventriloquist Doll-glass Eyes-rare-look For Sale
Vintage large black original folk art ventriloquist doll with bright blue glass eyes. Probably from 1880's era. It measures approximately 21" tall and 9" wide and weighs about 6 pounds. It is made of many different materials as is the case with most of these folk art type dolls. The head, hands and upper body are composition. The hair is black wool. The arms, legs and feet are wooden. The internal workings are wood, metal, and composition. It appears to have originally been a ventriloquist doll but no longer is in working order. The mouth was permanently closed with white composition material and no longer moves. All the interior workings still seem to be in place to change it back to a working ventriloquist doll. The bright blue glass eyes move side to side when the doll is moved. The outfit is old cloth or cotton material-not sure if it's the original outfit. Overall the doll is in a solid vg condition. It is in a sitting position with crossed legs. The most noticeable wear is some missing composition on the back of the head, neck, and one ear. This can easily be fixed if need be. Gorgeous impressive looking rare doll and a classic piece of Black Americana. Pictured above are several views of the doll including hands, feet, internal structure, face, etc. Postage is $22.00 in USA. Foreign accoriding to country. (Winning Foreign offers over $50.00 must use registered mail).
