    My grandmother had this doll and when she passed away she gave it to my Mom. Before she passed away she gave it to me. It holds alot of memories for me. Every Sunday when I would go to visit her, the doll was setting a shelf behind the couch. The whole doll is made out of papier mache, the head is connected to the body and the arms and legs are jointed. The eyes are painted blue and the hair blond and is molded to the head. Her lips a puckered. There are no markings on her anywhere. I would like to know when she was made and who made her? I appreciate any help that anyone can give me.

      The technique for making this doll is called composition. Many company's made these composition dolls for several decades, sometimes an unmarked doll goes on to be called an unknown.
