Joel Ellis wood doll
Click To Enlarge

Rare antique 15" tall wooden jointed Joel Ellis doll circa 1878.  Made of maple hardwood with a molded maple wood head as all of these Joel Ellis dolls were. The doll is missing the lower portion of both arms and both hands as well as one foot.  One of her metal feet is still present.  She has a beautiful old patina from many years of being loved. She is missing most of the paint on her face and also has scattered paint loss on her upper back, chest and lower legs.  Possible very old paint touch up but we cannot be sure.  There are a few scattered small splits in the wood so be sure to look over all of the photos.  Jointed at the shoulders, hips, and knees (would have been jointed at the elbows too if the lower arms were present).   This is a wonderful old doll even in this condition and would make a great addition to any early doll collection.   If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.   PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS EARLY AMERICAN JOEL ELLIS DOLL.
