Hi! I recently bought an old doll at a local yard sale and would appreciate any information on how old it is. I have researched everywhere and have been unable to find one like it. The picture I posted was one that I found that closely resembles the head, but mine is 20" in circumference and the body is made up of some type of small knit netted material and stuffed with a gray yarn substance. The doll is 23" inches from head to toe and cute as a button! Thanks for any help!

    She looks like a Kewpie. the body and hands tell the whole story

    Thanks for the info...I'm still not able to find one with the brown material body mine has, though...maybe handmade?

    No it's compostion. Some companies made the legs together, Cameo movable legs. Look up Kewpie and look at the hands too. It's not home made though. The first were bisque, then came compostion.

    Take a picture of it without the clothes, and a full body shot

    No I don't give out my number. I see this is for sale on ebay. I have to say however if there is only one picture I don't see it doing well. A doll collector will want to see the condition of the whole doll

    Okay now I see. Yes the body does look home made.
