There wasn't a Sunday school class in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Even the youngest children were expected to sit silently and respectfully alongside the grownups. Because good behavior rarely lasted as long as the services did, some mothers let their children play with small toys brought from home. Some of the most successful of these are known as church dolls or prayer dolls, church-pew or pew dolls, or pew babies. Handmade by Joan Smith this cutie measures 13" long and is made of cotten material and lace. Light blue with multi colored flower print.
