This doll has been in my mother's possesion for about 50 yrs or so. Near as I can tell he is complete, just has dirty hands and i'm not sure what I can safely clean him with. The tag say Willy the Hobo by Baby Barry toys.

    I know if you want to find them you have to spell his name "Skeleton" haha I found some that went for auction, four different ones. I have never seen one up close, and only saw one once on a doll forum. I'll see what I can dig up.

    I tried a little googling myself and was suprised at how many people assume THIS doll is a Red Skelton! It is definitely an Emmet Kelly.

    Was just given this doll as a gift. He is the same but he has no hair and hat. Plus I will need a cover for it. Any suggestions as to who might fix him? He is from the Baby Barry Toy co. NY. Has a number too.

    I have an Emmett Kelly doll. His head, hands and feet are porcelain, his body seems to be stuffed, but stiffer than cotton. He is wearing a gray hat, green and red jacket, white ruffled shirt, blue bowtie, and red plaid pants. There is no evidence to who made this doll oe how old it is. Can someone please help me? He has the red nose, orange hair, black beard and blue eyes. Thank you!
