My mother was given this doll by an American soldier in 1942 or 1943 whilst he was in England during the war.
She is sorting through her things whilst she still can and wants to know more about the doll before she passes on to her grand daughter.

It is 14" long.
The arms, legs and head still move with the original workings.
The eyes open & shut.
I cannot find any makers marks/stamp on it at all.
It is made of a hard material, I dont think its plastic, possibly 'Composition'?
These arent the original clothes but they were in the same outfit style but made of a stiff Organza material.
She would be very grateful if anyone has any further information.

    Your doll is made of composition and may have had name of company that made her on her original clothes . These dolls were made from 1930's to 40's . They are a bit of Tiny tear look doll and many companies made them . They are rather common to find . Unmarked would make is very hard to name manufacturer as so many looked like this . It is a wonderful keepsake from Your Mother .
    Here is just a similar one to see . They are often just called unmarked composition baby dolls .
