Mary Todd Lincoln doll

Description: Mary Todd Lincoln was often ridiculed by her contemporaries for spending money and her forceful personality. She was a well educated woman who terribly missed her husband, President Abraham Lincoln, and sons Willie and Tad. This doll was made about 1953. The A & H Doll Company placed an ad for “A Doll of Destiny” featuring Mary Todd Lincoln in a magazine. Along with 11 other dolls, the company celebrated 12 influential female historical figures including Betsy Ross and Marie Antoinette. For just $9.50 including shipping and handling, one of these exquisitely dressed dolls could arrive at your home.
