Doll trunk

Identifier: Tobacco Farm Life Museum
Girls of all ages enjoy playing with dolls. Pictured here is a doll trunk from the 1940s used to hold the most prized doll of a little girl’s collection. The trunk is red and covered with white stars. The inside lining is white with a geometric red pattern. Inside the trunk is a place for the doll to lie as well as two drawers to hold the dolls clothes and accessories. There is also two hangers for the dolls hanging clothes. Doll trunks made it convenient for little girls to take their prized possessions everywhere and helped keep their rooms clean for mom. more...
