      I believe it is home made from a pre printed panel and person that made it also did the painting between lines on fabric
      Lithograph printed dolls - litho dolls - were often sold by the yard off the bolt in flat form. Mama or grandma or the child could stitch up a serviceable plaything quickly and easily. In addition to a lifelike face, clothing or undergarments were frequently part of the printed design. Maybe Charlie Mcarthy ?

      Or Charlie Chaplin ?

      Yes I would say Charlie Chaplin :-))

      You know what.. after seeing your expertise here.. I am going to go with your thought of Charlie Chaplin.. rather than Charlie McCarthy.. Still trying to find exact pattern.. :| Determined.. :)
    7. Sunfawn Sunfawn, 7 years ago
      Thought Charlie McCarthy as your prior suggestion.. monacle.. bowtie.. ? Would think I would be able to find the exact pattern.. but not so far.. I always want to find exact match.. to figure out what it is .. maker. year.. So many items hard to "nail" .. :)

      Chaplin in 1914, in one of his his first film roles was costumed very close to this: http://youtu.be/ySTg0IU4f7A
