Doll

1900 - 1905

Doll with pottery head, jointed body and limbs.  

The doll was made by Mrs Banks for her daughter Ivy who was born around 1900. The dolls clothes were made to replicate her daughter’s clothes. The doll is called Enid.

Often dolls similar to this would have only been allowed to have been played with on a Sunday as a special treat.
