Creator (Role)

Albert Bruckner's Sons (Maker)
Albert Bruckner was a lithographer in New York who worked with the Gray Lithographying Company before starting his own company making dolls with lithographed faces. A 1926 ad for Bruckner Dolls depicts an example almost identical to this one, calling it a "Tu-In-One" with "Reversible Negro Mammy and White Novelty Dolls" with the poem "Turn me up Turn me back First I'm white Them I'm black" The ad claims that Albert Bruckner's Sons is "one of America's oldest Doll Manufacturers – Established 1901." Bruckner also made similar dolls for E.I. Horsman, which retailed as part of the Babyland Rag Doll Series.
