Carrie - Circa 1904
After the death of Carrie's father in 1909, her mother put Carrie and her brother Charley into a Brooklyn school and home for destitute children with intentions of getting them back when her health improved....15" tall, embroidered blue eyes, eyebrows, and sweet smile, needle sculpted nose, brown (speckled) mohair hair hand sewn to head. Wearing pink corduroy lined coat and hat with claret piping trim, hat adorned with handmade fabric "flower" to match her dress, wine tapestry carpetbag holds hand painted wooden schoolbook and Carrie's favorite "Teddy Bear".
