Vtg Chinese Mission Cloth FARMER Doll ADA LUM 1930s 40s:
$33

My Treat!
Win three or more items this week and I will pay for the combined shipping!I am listing a few dolls from my collection of vintage Chinese mission dolls this week.These dolls were produced in China and Hong Kong from the 1920's through the 1950's. Missionaries employed Chinese people to sew these dolls which were destined for the western market, through their associated churches.This provided occupation for local people and a source of fund raising for the missions.The dolls made in China are from before 1949 when the missionaries left for British Hong Kong following the Revolution.Ada Lum was one of these Missionaries, and like Door of Hope dolls her work is now highly prized.This farmer doll has the original Ada Lum stamp on his body, although faded. It reads "Farmer /Original / Ada Lum Doll" and "Made in China"As you can see from the photos he is very clean, considering his age.He has his original straw sandals and is wearing SOCKS, too! I did not remove these sandals to wash his socks as they are complicated and a bit stiff with age.I have washed and ironed his blue outfit. It is so nicely made, machine made but with hand sewn details and frog closures. This should have a string belt to keep the trousers up but it is missing. Looking closely at the doll I believe his legs have been sewed back on more recently than when he was first made: the thread is a different texture.He is a LARGE doll, 20" long. His body is stuffed (sawdust?) and he is constructed as shown in the photos. His face is embroidered.The other dolls in the photos are also Mission dolls and will be listed separately. This sale is just for the big one, but it is interesting to see their variation in size.I have decided to start this lovely doll at a low opening offer with , to keep my sales lively and fair. Thank you for your interest, and please have a look at my other offerings this week.NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL buyers:

Items with a winning offer over $50 must be insured, and will require Priority shipping in order to insure them. International Priority shipping is not covered by my free shipping offer!
