A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

I have a special passion for early printed cloth dolls & animals...not sure why.  The whole idea of these early toys starting as printed pieces of cloth so a mother could stitch them up and stuff them to provide a beloved toy, just pulls on my heartstrings.  Once these little dolls & animals have been handed down through the years, they all take on a special personality all their own.  One such doll from my collection in this photo has an early 1900s copyright date.  Maybe some others out there have some to share as well?

Here is an early example of a printed cloth doll that measures 24" in length with printed undergarments, wearing a ragdoll dress.  For details & purchase information click on:

These are awesome!

Thanks Cyndi - I have a small collection of these dolls and love them - also have a collection of the printed cloth animals (dog and cats) and just yesterday I added a printed cloth rabbit to the group, My rag doll avatar is actually one of these circa 1900 dolls.

Here is a photo of my most recent acquisition.
