Composition Dolls


The first Composition Dolls were made in the 1870s. Composition Dolls are made partially or wholly out of Composition– it’s a material made from sawdust, glue, cornstarch, resin and/or wood flour. Plastic overtook composition for doll manufacturing in the late 1940s/early 1950s, so if you can find a Composition Doll from the old days, you have a pretty rare antique for your collection!

Gigi’s Dolls and Sherry’s Teddy Bears carries a wide variety of Composition Dolls for sale in Chicago. If you have any questions or would like to learn more our vintage doll products, call us at 773-594-1540.
