After my mother passed, I found this doll in her drawer.

She has arms, legs, hips and shoulders that move. Her joints are held together w/some type of fabric string.

She is 4.5 inches tall has big Cupie doll eyes, that do not move. The only mark I can find is on her L. shoulder. It appears to be JF or JT but I think it is JF.

Her shoes and socks are painted on.

She is certainly a googlie doll but those initials don't help, can't find them in my book. The nearest is JK for Theodor Recknagel, a German company which operated 1893 - 1930. The googlies were made by several companies, all German as far as I am aware, attempting to get into the market after the 1910 introduction of Rose O'Neill's Kewpie dolls, which were a great sensation.
The only other explanation would be that the doll is a reproduction made be someone with the initials you mention.

This doll almost looks like a doll called googley-eyed that I had.
