    The cloth girl doll on the left is thought to be homemade. She wears a dress and cap of red and white stripes with blue trim. The cap has a blue feather on the right side. The dress has white sleeves trimmed with lace. She has white socks and dark blue shoes with red laces. The doll on the right side has blue and white striped overalls with a white shirt. It also is wearing a navy cap and shoes made of felt. The hair is made of brown yarn and the blue eyes and eyelashes are sewn with thick thread. These dolls are unique because they incorporate two specific styles from the 1920's. They have the cloth body, brown yarn hair, and blue threaded eyes and eyelashes of a Raggedy Ann type doll. However they also have the tall body, long legs, short dress, and feathered cap of the flapper style. It is obvious that the creator of these dolls took in the culture around them.
