I have not been able to find this doll or anything similar in books. She is certainly American made and probably dates to the 1930s.
This doll is 14.5" tall and all cloth, with the exception of her boots. She is made of brown cotton in a very unusual construction. She is not jointed at all, but her arms are wired (she may have originally held a baby). Her face is molded and painted, and she has black mohair curls glued to her forehead only, the rest of her head is bald. Her body is constructed so that she has no shape to her rear end, but her abdomen protrudes quite a bit on either side, almost as though her torso is backwards. Her legs end at molded boots made from composition.
She is not marked or tagged in any way.
Mammy wears a blue cotton dress with white polka dots, and bandana. The dress has an attached pleated half slip and she wears white cotton bloomers underneath. Over her dress she wears a sheer white apron and neckerchief.
