Vintage Composition Topsy Turvy Doll Caucasian African American Reversible Dress. Please consider product images as part of the item's description. Please note: Any display or sizing comparison tools used in photos are not included with listing. Some natural wear to composition surface over time, along with a few seam tears on clothing. A sweet folk doll that changes can be changed between a young white & Negro girl.
Each wears a long, brightly-patterned polka dot dress which covers the opposite head. Both dolls have jointed arms; black girl is also jointed at the neck. There is some difficulty in directing her left arm down to her side--at a certain point, it separates from the socket & sits alongside body rather than housed at the shoulder (actual limb stringing remains intact, so the necessary solution is unknown). Molded hair, with three added tufts on black girl's head standing out at sides & directly top center. Outfit may be original, but this is uncertain.Could use restitching in areas. Due to the fragile material of body & minor damage already sustained, doll would be best suited for display. Makes a great gift for the collector, enthusiast, or restoration hobbyist! Approximate total weight: 113.5 grams. Approximate measurements: 7 inches long head to head.
