Door of Hope Mission Doll. Rare seldom seen, Antique Vintage early period COLLECTIBLE DOOR OF HOPE MISSION WOMAN DOLL, CIRCA 1901.
Door of Hope was created in Shanghai, China in 1901 to help destitute children. These dolls were made TO help fund the mission. Young girls of the mission intricately handmade each doll's clothing replicating what the Chinese people worn. The heads/neck area of the early period dolls were carved of Chinese fruitwood (generally Pearwood), while their arms, hands and feet were made of cloth. In later years the dolls hands and arms to the elbow, and sometimes feet and legs were also made of wood.
The wood is very smooth, unvarnished with great detail. ThE eyes hair and lips would then be lightly handpainted almost like stained/brushed/rubbed with color. The bodies were made of cloth stuffed with raw cotton and bound feet.
There were no markings on these dolls. This doll is from the 1. Her HEAD/neck area is carved OF fruitWOOD (generally pearwood). Her hair is in a carved bun style with gold accents and handpainted/stained face.
