Black Folk Art Cloth Doll. The Little Hamptons Ebony, 26 inch art doll, inspired by antique Beecher type cloth dolls.


 Ebony is styled on late 1800s Beecher type dolls. She is a cloth doll, stuffed with cotton and aged slightly to have a very slight faded look. I have needle sculpted her face and embroidered her eye brows and mouth.
She is just over 26" tall and dressed in a pretty outfit that I have machine and hand sewn. Her dress is made from early 1900s fabric and her underwear is made from newer but dyed and aged cotton fabric with antique lace trim. All the clothing is removable and mostly has hand sewn button loop fastenings.
Her hair is made from persian lamb wool fabric. Her eyes are glass , backed with painted clay for the whites. She has a very Beecher type doll look with the painted eyelashes.
You can see how big she is in the last picture with her younger sister who is in a separate listing. This listing is just for Ebony. The other items are for display purposes only.

Ebony is not suitable for young children, as she is a doll for the adult collector.

She is signed and dated on the back and she has signed and dated swing
