I am wondering if you have an oil cloth doll. They were sewn in the depression
Maybe ... I'm on a computer now, so here are the two pics I have (again, no face pic, sorry :( ) ...
By writing that it looks "clean", do you mean that it is not dirty? If so, that is a matter of how well it was kept clean, not a matter of what the material is. Oil cloth can be kept clean; I remember when patterned oil cloth was used to cover the kitchen table. We most certainly scrubbed it after meals. It lasted a long time and sometimes we would scrub those patterns right off the cloth.
Find a doll hospital they can be of great service
From your pics, this looks to be homemade. Across the years thread has changed. I am not a thread expert, but someone who is might be able to look at the type of thread used to guestimate age.
many oil cloth dolls were handmade . I am sure it has had to be resewn maybe a few time if its been used . Doll hospital would be a place to start
Hey thanks again to everyone for their help !
