By 1914 or so, all-bisque dolls usually sold for less than 50 cents at five-and-dime stores, candy stores, and craft stores. These charming little figures fascinated children who were intrigued with dolls small enough to fit in a coat pocket. But these little dolls appealed to adults too as party favors, cake decorations, pin cushions, and knick-knacks. Many women made clothing for these dolls of crepe paper, fabric, and ribbon, or created knitted and crocheted outfits.
