Ohio Amish Female with Straw Basket and Washboard (Full View)

Ohio Amish Female with Straw Basket and Washboard (Full View)

This figure of an Amish woman is made with a wooden ball for the head and a stuffed fabric torso. She is wearing a black cotton cap, and black shawl. Her hands are also made from wood. She is holding a woven straw basket, that holds a washboard and piece of cloth. Her dress is a plain cotton, with a black apron. Amish dolls are generally faceless; perhaps because they follow the Bible scripture in Deuteronomy 5:8, which is "Thou shalt not make thee any graven images...". Amish clothing is usually plain and monochromatic. Tag: "Baltic Mills, Baltic Ohio." The figure is 9 inches (23 cm) tall.
