An unusual Mid Victorian WAX DOLL....she looks to me rather like a Witch! On the base is attached piece of paper providing some history of this piece and dating it to 1836 - 1837. Most of the clothing appears original with the exception I think of the dress which looks like a newer replacement. Her bonnet, gloves, and little leather shoes look to be original...the undergarments are quite old replacements I'd say.The wire stand also appears to be a later replacement with the original wire probably having rusted away. She stands 15" tall.The head and shoulders are of wax with the torso and arms and legs made I think of wire with padding. Interesting highly collectible old piece....some splits in wax around the neck area...please refer pictures.
