This doll arm was recovered from a farmstead in Chase County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2005. The doll arm is made of bisque porcelain and has a realistic skin-like matte finish. Bisque dolls were very popular during the late 1800s. The site was excavated in 1980 during the Emporia State University's archaeological field school.
