Early Hand Stitched Calico Top for Large Papier Mache or China Head Doll

This is a wonderful early top made of brown calico with much detail. It measures approx. 9 1/2" across the shoulders seam to seam, 5 7/8" from front neck edge to bottom, 11" back top to bottom, 10" across waist area & sleeves about 4 5/8" long from seam to edge. It is fully lined with hook & eye closures in the back. One hook side is missing. Has nice detailed front with 6 square fabric covered button accents. There is some wear on the front as seen in the photos. Most is on the left side where there are some wear holes. Some lighter wear on the other front side mostly on the green that has also faded a bit. Also some staining to the inside lining. Retains most of its lovely colors. Lovely early piece that would look gorgeous on an early Papier Mache or China Head doll. Would look gorgeous with a lovely old brown skirt.
