This doll must have belonged to Abigail H. Stitched by a child-like hand are the intials A.H. and a date of 1791 on the dress sleeve of this doll. I imagine Abigail to have loved this doll to pieces all through her early childhood years. I can see her toting this doll along with her while helping Mom & Sis with the daily chores on the old homestead. Those years are long past...maybe forgotten, but her beloved doll lives on....
This early style Prairie Doll is handmade. I used calicos and homespuns in muted shades of brown & tan for her clothing. Her bonnet it an actual gathered/brimmed prairie bonnet. She has been mended, patched & aged, her clothing alike.
