ELIZABETH CADY STANTON

Authentic Reproduction
Handcrafted
Limited Edition #XXXX of 5000

GOTZ Dolls and the NEW YORK State Collectibles Commission is proud to declare the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Doll as the very first New York State collectible.

It is said Elizabeth Stanton may be the most important figure in women's rights. But as a girl growing up in New York State of the 1800's, she was often told that she should have been a boy.

This Gotz 18" ELIZABETH CADY STANTON DOLL shown at the age of 10 (1825), she wears the red long sleeve dress covered with an apron. White trim is at her neck and cuffs, and soft black leather shoes peek out beneath her lace trimmed white cotton pantaloons. Elizabeth's hair is long, curly and blond pulled back in the style of the day for older girls. She has an adorable fresh face with bright blue sleep eyes, soft huggable body, & articulated vinyl full arms and legs. The box has an open front for display. Elizabeth Stanton Doll is rare and no longer available from Gotz. Gotz Dolls are very collectible and high quality.

This doll was made in the year 2000 and manufactured in the United States, limited to 5000 pieces.


The little red dress she wears may have been a symbol for all that she wanted to change about her life. She and her sisters had to dress alike, and this dress became a symbol of all that kept her from doing what she wanted.
