TitleHomemade Cloth Marionette
Coverage / Year1917
DescriptionThis is a blonde yarn haired girl marionette. She has threaded blue eyes, red lips, and a black nose. She wears a blue dress with a white collar. Pinned to the left arm is a gold paper horn. The body is made of a light beige colored material.
InterpretationThis doll was created and played with by Pat Cheseboro of Saunemin, Illinois. Although her and her sisters, Ruth and Nina had their own store bought doll collection they also enjoyed making their own. This is a wonderful example of the skill and creativity these young girls possessed. It is also a testament to many children during the time who liked to work hard for their play.
