Filled with excitement, Molly prepares to begin a new life in America. Her father is a professor and her mother an accomplished dressmaker who made her entire outfit, down to her travel bag in which Molly carries a little dog, a gift from her eldest brother, Bernard. Around her neck she wears her most precious possession, a small goldtone Star of David threaded on a dark brown satin ribbon.
Inspired by the collected memories of Eastern European Jewish immigrants from the late 1800s, this doll reminds us of their troubles and triumphs in building new lives for themselves in America. From the Ellis Island Collection of Porcelain Dolls.
