Extract From Blog

Pincushion dolls are not really dolls and often were not even pin cushions! Some collectors use the term “half-doll.” The top half of each doll was made of porcelain.

The edge of the half-doll was made with several small holes for thread, and the doll was stitched to a fabric body with a voluminous skirt. The finished figure was used to cover a hot pot of tea, powder box, pincushion, broom, or lamp.

They were made in sizes from less than an inch to over 9 inches high. Pin cushion dolls were often hand-painted. Most date from the early 1900s to the 1950s. Collectors often find just the porcelain doll without the fabric skirt.
