Don't blink or you'll miss her. She's so tiny. We think it's a 'she' because she's wearing a skirt and no ordinary skirt at that. This one is made of 14K yellow gold (acid tested).
This antique Victorian Blackamoor doll figurine is just a tad over 1 inch high. The body is made of hardstone over a wire frame. We can see a bit of copper wire under her damaged arm.
We're not sure what this was intended for...she came with a small lot of antique Blackamoors. This was a popular motif in the mid-1800s, often used in jewelry. This little doll is what you see...very old, very black and gold, a little damaged, and a lot wonderful.
