Sadie is one of several dolls in the Ellis Island Collection of Porcelain Dolls whose features, costumes and stories were inspired by the collected memories of the descendants of Eastern European Jews who immigrated to America through Ellis Island in the late 1800s. Brown eyed Sadie began her long journey from a city in Galicia, then a part of the vast Austro Hungarian Empire. Her travel costume consists of a moss green boiled wool jacket under which she wears a floral-printed dress and a lace-trimmed overdress. A sash made from the same sheer fabric as her overdress accents her waistline. Parted in the middle, Sadie's hair has been drawn up into two bouncy pony-tails that peek from beneath her bow trimmed hat. The hat has been fashioned from the same moss green fabric as her jacket. A complementary floral fabric forms the bow. Threaded on a dark brown ribbon, Sadie wears a small gold toned Star of David. The pendant once belonged to her great aunt. More floral print fabric has been used for the dress on Sadie's little rag doll. The dolls hair is made from light brown yarn. Short, white socks peek over Sadie's medium brown, faux-suede, high topped shoes. A bit of crinoline provides some pouf to her skirt. Beneath her skirts, Sadie wears a pair of knee-length pantaloons. The doll has a porcelain head, arms, hands, legs and feet and a cloth covered stuffed body. Sturdy plastic doll stand included. Height: 20". Wt: 4.15 pounds.
