The following information is on the back of Mom-ma Doll .......
Mom-ma Shyster original from Maggie Head brought 1965 when she lived in Nashville. Seemingly custom made. Dress pattern after my mother’s picture in 1955. Seems these were custom ordered and made for her. Approx. 16 inches high.
"Magge Head Kane, a Midwest U.S. doll artist who worked from the late 1950s into the 1980s. She specialized in realistic portrait dolls, and made many dolls that depict historical and storybook figures.

Kane was recuperating from an illness when she began to study ceramics and painting. She was one of the founding members of the National Institute of American Doll Artists in 1963, and gave courses in mold-making and doll-making. Her dolls often are marked “Magge Head,” but some also have her married name. Her husband, Keith Kane, became her partner and helped to reproduce her dolls and to teach their seminars.
She is represented in the The Susan Quinlan Doll & Teddy Bear Museum & Library, Santa Barbara, California and The Strong Museum, Rochester, New York. She wrote a book about pixie dolls.
