This doll was auctioned on Ebay - it was an interesting auction to watch. She sold for US $180.49. There are additional images at the auction. A folk art doll similar to this recently sold on Ebay for over $700. View pictures of a similar doll I own at a previous post on Maida Today. Mine is a bit more folky with arms that stick out from her sides. The arms in this doll below reminds me a bit of a Columbian doll. What do you think of her?
Google Patents is a fun place to hang out - particularly if you search from 1820 - 1920 when most designs would now be in the public domain. It's beautiful to see the breadth of creativity when you search for doll designs from 1820 - 1920. Doll artists will find instruction and inspiration at the click of a mouse.
