The Story of Josephne, an Heirloom
The pictures that follow are of Josephine, a family heirloom belonging to Kelli H. The doll belonged to Grandmother Grace, who painted her hair brown and made her slippers into highbutton shoes. I think that she should stay this way; this is the way Grace loved her. Even if Kelli removes the paint, she should keep a card with the story on Jo somewhere. Jo could be an 1870 China head, fancy do with blonde hair, or she could be an Emma Clear artists' version c. 1940s, very desireable, and written up by Janet Pagter Johl and Eleanor St. George. Enjoy, and we thank Kelli for sharing her lovely photos and her charming friend.
