"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.
