Does anyone know and could share any primary documentation on the dates (approximate would do) of the first known topsy-turvy dolls or clothes pin dolls? 

Thanks!

Mr Mescher, I can honestly say I've never come across anything for our era, even if I extend that to about 1820-1870.

I agree, the evidence to anything earlier than late 19th century, is conjectural and widely re-circulated. I hope you will publish your research--it seems you've done the most in-depth searching possible (I read the previous thread) and sometimes lack of evidence is worth documenting. It might get the ball rolling in the scholarly community and turn up something new, whether antebellum or not.
