Customer Question

I have what appears to be a very old black cloth doll. My brother, who is now deceased, had it in his antique business some years back. Oddly, this is the only thing which had no documentation. He was diligent about writing details and values of everything, but this appears to have slipped through. It may have been something from our family, but I have no recollection of it. I can send a photo. The facial details are clearly hand sewn and the clothes appear to be as well. An interesting point is the doll has on muslin underwear with suspenders and there appears to be what are autographs, or greetings to whomever was the owner. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

This appears to be a mid-20th century handmade cloth doll, probably made by a family member or friend for a child.

The value would be around $25.00.

Please let me know if I can help further.
