Hand-made doll
Eastern USA
Cotton, linen, buttons, stuffing
19" (48.2 cm) high by 12" (30.5 cm) wide
Ex. Ames Gallery, Berkeley, ex. Cathryn Cootner, Sonoma

This is what is called a hand-made/home-made doll, as opposed to a 'mend', which was a commercially made doll that was similarly patched and repaired. This charmer is full of life, despite its great age and obvious signs of use.
