Here is some history on Half-Dolls~  Half Dolls are just that- generally, the upper half of a human figure, without legs.  Half Dolls were produced without legs so they could be attached to something useful- very commonly, pin cushions, but also whisk brooms, tea cozies & numerous things that could grace a ladies dressing table, such as powder boxes & powder puffs.  Most dolls are between 2 & 6 inches tall.
 
The vast majority of Half Dolls were produced between 1900 and the 1920s.  After the WWII many of the molds were destroyed and their beauty lost.  Some were hidden away & saved so you may still enjoy these treasures today!
