Historical Folk Toys, This Topsey Turvey Doll was Made in the 1950s - 1960s one side is Mammy and the other side is a Child these dolls were common for the American Folk art.

Topsey Turvey dolls were first made by black women on southern plantations before the Civil War. There was some debate about how they were first used some say that black mothers may have given them to their little girls as a prelude to their lives as caretakers of white children or the mothers may have been showing themselves in that role (According to Auction Finds).

Mammy, has a red and white Polka dot dress with a kerchief for a head wrap and a yellow trim around the bottom there is no rips but a couple of light small stains on her kerchief I am sure can be wiped out her face seems to be hand painted. The other side the little girl with a blue checked dress has a small hole in her dress under her waist about a 1/4 inch round. Her face also appears to be hand painted.

This would be perfect for the collector of American Folk Art
This doll is 13-1/2" Tall and about 6-1/2" Wide
