This pretty Pincushion Doll is hand painted with curly blonde hair and a pink bodice, accented with a deeper pink Rose on the shoulder. She is wearing an elaborate crinoline skirt with a ruffled hem and around the paniers of her overskirt. The lower part of her skirt is netting with a pink and green silk embroidered border where it meets the taffeta. Her skirt has a cardboard form to stiffen it so that she can stand, and this is lined with crepe paper, which has a tear, other than that, she is in good condition, except for a couple of small stains on her skirt. I cannot see any markings, but would think she is from Japan. She stands 7 1/4" tall and 6" wide and is a very attractive young lady , certainly a great addition to any collection.
