Dinah doll

This depression era hand stitched doll named Dinah was a childhood gift from the donor’s grandmother. Made of black stockinette stockings and stuffed with wool batting, Dinah is wearing a blue cotton dress with white polka dots, a white cotton hemmed apron, a red handkerchief scarf in her hair, and black cotton velveteen shoes with black leather soles. Beneath the dress is a bright pink pair of bloomers. Dinah’s face is completely hand embroidered.
