Description

Sun Rubber Company of Barberton, Ohio was better known for their automobile and Disney toys than their dolls, and is not particularly popular among doll collectors. The company was active 1923-1974, closing just before MARTA excavations began.
This doll seems to date to 1956, as that is when similar models are dated. The rubber may have been a lighter color originally but the company also manufactured darker-skinned dolls so it may have been a darker variant of the complete doll pictured. The year would have been stamped on the back between the shoulders.
