Composition Mama Doll Dresses, Clothes
Antique Composition Mama Doll dresses, clothes–
This category is authentic clothes for the straight-legged composition and cloth mama dolls made from the early 1900’s through the 1930s. They typically have straight legs, not bent legs like the babies–(Please see photo) the baby doll clothes are a different category. You will find clothes here made using authentic styles and fabrics for this type doll.
The Mama dolls were typically made from the early 1900s, mostly after WWI and achieved their greatest popularity in the late 20s and early 30s. They were called “mama dolls” because they had a crier that made a sound like “mama”, and they had straight legs so they could “stand”, representing little girls of the era.. The baby dolls of the era, representing babies, not toddlers or little girls, also had criers, so the issue became confusing. I hope the picture will help clear this up.
