Folk Art Old Doll on Spring Celluloid Face Jack in Box

Here's an unusual vintage folk art doll. She has a great looking celluloid face... the whole head must be celluloid. Her body/clothes are made of cloth placed over a metal spring. The spring is concealed by being covered with another layer of cloth under the dress. Wooden legs and feet are attached to cardboard at the bottom of the spring. She's 8-3/8" high. By pushing down on her "shoulders" you can make her move and wiggle. This may have been very exciting to a child before the days of TV and battery operated toys. I've not seen any dolls like this before, couldn't find any info in my books about dolls on springs so we've been wondering about it and thought maybe it came out of an old jack-in-the-box toy that someone added feet to. The cloth is old, darkened with age, and fragile... but the doll is quite fascinating... a unique and whimsical child to add to your vintage collection.
