Please help me identify this antique doll!

Please help to identify this little cutie! His head appears to be paper mache and he has molded hair.

His body is made of cloth and his legs are stuffed with straw. His shoes are wooden clogs and his eyes are googly. His clothes are felt.

We are guestimating that he was manufactured around 1918 based on the owner's age.

Thanks for your help! Also, how much are these dolls worth or typically sold for?

Thanks again, Marissa

Doll is by FREUNDLICH, Inc.

This doll dates from around 1937-1940's. It has a composition head, flesh colored cloth body and limbs with celluloid googly-type eyes.

Some were sold by Sears, Roebuck & Co. through their catalog.

The dolls made during the war years were dressed in military outfits and was the company's most popular. They also carry the most value, especially the General Douglas MacArthur doll.

Dolls were also made in sets such as the Dionne Quints, Red Riding Hood, Wolf & Grandmother etc. Mint In Box are much higher for these sets ($800-$1,000).

An individual doll, such as your Dutch Boy, would bring $65-75 if mint.
