This Eve doll is made up from people just like Eve brought to America as slaves  from Africa and the West Indies.  Their African customs and strong sense of community influenced  everything in Williamsburg and grew into a special culture. Eve lived in the capital  city of Williamsburg  in a house near the Governor's Palace. Children will love playing with this doll dressed in a green jacket , skirt and navy plaid apron and hair wrap. 12"H
Colonial Williamsburg's African-American interpretive programs re-create and interpret the role of 18-Century Africans and African-Americans in the community tie. By preserving the Historic Area and depicting the lives of the diverse people who lived in 18th- centuryWilliamsburg, we are striving to help the future learn from the past.
Although this doll is dressed in carefully researched period clothing, the appearance is vastly different from 18th-century dolls. The most common dolls in the colonies during most of the period would have been simply carved wooden figures, sometimes with hinged arms and legs for posing.
Doll: Surface wash
Clothing: Hand wash in cold water

Quality little doll with great attention to detail.

I've had a collection of these cute Colonial Williamsburg cloth dolls from Merry Makers for years now. They are so cute to share with children, or for an older Colonial enthusiast to display on a bookshelf, and are a nice educational toy for kids learning about life in 18th century America. Eve wears a shift, pocket, stockings, shoes, shortgown/jacket, petticoat, apron, and headwrap. The quality is quite nice - the doll's outer garments are removable so she can be changed into other outfits, if a child desires, and everything is stitched and finished off well, with attention to detail that includes generous pleats on her petticoat and tiny stitches where her jacket would lace, with a functional velcro closure on the back. Her little face is lovely. Everything is made in a sturdy cotton fabric. I've recently noticed some chintzy, obvious knockoffs of these dolls being sold in and around Independence Park in Philly, and the difference in quality makes these dolls stand out all the more.
