  According to the woman who sold us this doll on EBay, it was originally made for her and her sister in 1929 or 1930 by her mother, from a store-bought "pattern which is long gone now." It's not known when this double-headed doll first came into existence, though it was well before 1930, and patterns for making it were sold until well after World War II (EXAMPLE 1   |   EXAMPLE 2). It was made in many variations, though always seems to have been linked to Stowe's two characters:
EXAMPLE 1A   |   EXAMPLE 1B   |   EXAMPLE 2   |   EXAMPLE 3   |   EXAMPLE 4   |   EXAMPLE 5   |   EXAMPLE 6   |   EXAMPLE 7
