Collecting Black Americana Part One: Antique Black American Folk Art Rag dolls As a lover of American Folk Art, my choice for the title “Folk Art at its Finest” are Black American cloth or rag dolls! Why? The answer is LOVE!
When I look at these wonderful handmade dolls I don’t
up one of these fabulous Black American rag dolls a thousand questions come to my mind. Who was the little girl who drug her doll around by one arm, who talked to her gently, who cared for her well enough to be around today, what kind of a life did she have? What was her future like? Did she succeed? Did she go on to be the same type loving mother to her children? For some, those questions will remain unanswered, for me the answer is again quite simple. The love that created those dolls had to have also created a loving & successful child as well!
