Q:  I’ve had this cloth doll for 50 years. She was made about 1840 and was given to a little girl in 1845. Her face and hair are painted on and there is a circular seam on her head. She has leather shoes and her dress is original. I found a doll like this in a doll book that said it was called the Alabama Indestructible Doll made by the Ella Smith Doll Co. What can you tell me about my doll?
