Large handmade black art doll is 28" tall with a patched cotton sack. Hand sculpted facial features, hand painted expressive eyes, She's OOAK.

Black art doll, crafted from muslin in my smoke free home has been painted, and sanded back in spots to create shading and highlights. Primitive doll is 15" tall sitting, or add a safety pin to the back of her to showcase her full height inside a cupboard door, or above a bench. Her eyes are shaded by her painted eyelids; complete with lashes, and sculpted eyebrows (Zoom on picture 4). Hair is needle felted mohair wool, tied randomly with rag strips, and held back with blue striped cloth. She is about 7" wide at the shoulders.

Penelope wears a 3 layered ensemble of striped cotton jumper, blue floral dress, and off white cotton petticoat. Her fingers and toes are sculpted, with painted nails on both. I accented her jumper with 2 vintage buttons, and it ties at the waist in back. Her collar is a piece of stained cheesecloth, sewn onto the dress. Burlap sack is filled with real cotton bolls in the hull, and is removable for displaying separately, if you wish. I patched it with a piece of homespun.

Black doll has a historical feel, and pairs well with any antique display, or black Americana collection. Care for the country black doll by spot cleaning, only.

OOAK ethnic doll will arrive with care and storage instructions, and will be signed, and dated. Not intended as a child's toy, collectible doll, only.
