Squeak Doll

"Squeak Doll", 2008, Oil on linen on board, 14.6 x 14.6cm (5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches)

An early American Squeak Doll made by the Sun Rubber Co and designed by Ruth E. Newton. I have found conflicting information about the dates these dolls were manufactured, some say 1960's others much earlier. I think its a very interesting object with a great character.

ARP, thanks for your great enthusiasm for my work as always. I'm very pleased that the work has gone to a good home now and in the household resides a little girl who looks just like the doll.

That's really nice to hear Dianne. As I couldn't buy it at this time I'm glad it's gone to a home where a little girl will get to enjoy it :) said...

These little toy paintings are so cool. They look like fun to paint but they don't look too manly. Do they have bullrider dolls?
