Moments In Black Doll History - Leo Moss Doll Image

Left 18-1/2” Callie with papier mache head, recycled cloth body with composition arms/legs tinted to match the head; 21” Buzzy - papier mache head on recycled composition arms/legs and cotton body tinted to match the coloring of the head. Sitting is Grace Mae Lavett, 20” with papier mache head with brown glass eyes and tears on her checks, recycled cloth body and legs with composition arms tinted to match the head.

With permission from Steva Roark Allgood, Lisa Ambrose of Antique Doll  Collector Magazine (ADCM),  shared the above Leo Moss doll grouping with me.  The image appeared in the June 2009 issue of ADCM in the article, "Reflections on Collecting," written by Ms. Allgood, the owner of these extremely rare, one-of-a-kind Leo Moss dolls. 

Thanks again Steva and Lisa!
