The Kansas Antique Doll Club designed this doll for the Kansas Centennial in 1961. The doll was meant to represent dolls carried by children traveling through Kansas at the time of early statehood. This soft-bodied doll has porcelain limbs and head and wears a striped brown silk dress with lace trim, white petticoat and bloomers. There is a molded sunflower necklace at the doll's throat. The Kansas Centennial inspired the manufacture of many souvenirs like this.

Date: between 1960 and 1961
