Polly in yellow dressThis beautiful doll is made of fine china, with brown hair, a yellow bonnet, and eyes that could open and close. Her yellow organdy dress is adorned with a black velvet ribbon decorated with pink flowers. White stockings and black boots complete her outfit.
This toy doll was donated to the museum in 1982 by Charles Morton.

Trivia

The popularity of elaborate fashion dolls such as Polly necessitated a need for experts to repair them. Beginning in the 1830’s several “doll hospitals” opened across Europe. These employed specialists who could fix the beloved toys.
