13” CELLULOID Black & White TOPSY-TURVY c1910 All-Original
Charming and all-original, this circa 1910 Topsy-Turvy has celluloid mask faces and is in bright, clean & excellent condition, the celluloid is intact with no dents (only a small extra dimple on the black girl’s left cheek), and the peach doll flips over to be a black doll. When held the doll measures 12” from bonnet to skirt hem, and each half-doll is 5.5” bonnet to waist. Their faces are hand-painted over molded details: blue or black eyes, brown or black brows, and slightly smiling rosy open-closed mouths. The molded forehead curls are painted black on the brown doll and left un-painted on the peach doll, and each doll has arms in fabric to match their faces with mitten hands. The peach girl has a bonnet and dress of white dimity with lace trim; the black girl is dressed all in woven red gingham. This is an engaging toy, from original-owner, non-smoking home!!
Good luck and thank you for bidding!!
