Old Doll

My mum has aquired some old stuff from a late uncle and I`m trying to find some info on it, most of it is personal stuff like medals etc. but there is this old "creepy" doll and can`t find any info about it. There is nothing written anywhere that I can find so just a picture, I`ve done a google image search that comes up with nothing similar.
Anyone remember having anything like it or know what it is?

Re: Old Doll

Thanks Max, maybe home made then? Underneath the coat looks like leather. I`ll try for a better look tomorrow.

Looks Canadian ... the kind of outfit that would handle the weather we get 7 months of the year.

Re: Old Doll

I sent a couple of pics to this place - https://auctionata.com/en-us/free-va...kPfw&noredir=1 to see if they knew anything about it, here`s their reply.

Many thanks for your enquiry!

Our expert has established the following estimated price for your item:

doll, late 19th century, unknown maker,

How interesting.
So it is a real antique.
Maybe you should be taking it to a David Dickinsons Real Deal if it comes to a local area....that is, of course, if you want to sell it.

Re: Old Doll

It`s not mine Margaret, it was in an old suitcase that my mum got when her uncle died, there were quite a few interesting items from early last century and the war, including some Nazi playing cards (don`t have a pic of them though).
