Doll Arts: Cloth Dolls

"Doll manufacturers in England and the United States introduced the first commercially made rag dolls in the 1850s. Soft, safe, and warm to cuddle, a rag doll was often a child's first toy. These were generally less sophisticated than dolls made from other materials, such as bisque or wood, but had great charm nonetheless. Unfortunately, rag dolls are not very hard-wearing, as a result, fewer survive than any other type of doll." by Goodfellow
