    I know nothing about dolls. He looks old but…. He weighs a ton. The cloth body is filled with what feels like gravel (I know it’s not) for lack of better words to describe it better. His shoes appear to be a solid piece of wood. I’m showing a pic of his missing finger in hopes that someone will know what it’s comprised of

    Any help with age, maker, or anything else will be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Debora-Don't think I've seen 'Easy Shop' before. Number 170 out of 4000-seems like a big edition,yet appears at least frm a distance old & homemade-folk art.

    I thought I was logged in when I posted, but guess not.

    There is a 1998 book on making papier mache dolls. It won't allow me to c/p the link, but it's easy to find by typing "instructions for making papier mache dolls". Perhaps your local library might have a copy you could peruse for a likeness of your doll.

    I can offer no other thoughts.

    Perhaps @sassafras can offer help.
