1919 Louise Kampes Kamkins doll 19"Kamkins Studio art dolls were made by Louise R. Kampes of Atlantic City, NJ USA. 

 

Dolls are 18 or 19" tall, with heads of a heavy cloth canvas over rubber that is bonded together, then painted to form a mask like face with a swivel flange neck joint.  Painted eyes usually without eyelashes, closed mouth.  Most dolls found have a human or mohair pageboy style wig (some longer hair wigs too), probably so the doll could be dressed as either a boy or girl. 

 

Dolls have a flesh colored cloth stuffed body with either disk jointed shoulders and hips or tab style joint at the shoulders with stitched hips and a voice box in the tummy.  Ms. Kampes used home sewers to assemble the dolls and clothing in appropriate to the era outfits.
