This homemade cloth doll with papers saying he was made for a boy named tucker by his mother for his birth 1863. I wish I had better photo's to show but I did sell him many years back . The doll was made by a slave and she apparently used scraps of old material to create a gentleman doll dressed in fine clothes and was gave to her son . Did she want her son to see that he could be anything he wanted to be in life and be a business man not a slave . She must have been a very good Mother !
The doll won a blue ribbon at a doll show .
