This is an intriguing 10" tall early 1900s hand carved folk art wooden stump doll. She is carved from a single solid piece of wood. She has strongly carved facial features, pronounced breasts, simply carved skirt and large Dutch style wooden shoes. I can feel that she also has a carved bun under her bonnet. I have not attempted to remove any of her clothing. Her clothing consists of a red silk bonnet with remnants of black mesh over top and tied under her chin with a black velvet ribbon, a printed cloth blouse under a black crocheted shawl, a red wool stripe skirt, and a printed cotton underskirt edged with tiny rick rack trim. She had a newer glass dome which I unfortunately broke, so comes now only with the remaining base.
Condition is overall good though there is some loss to the black mesh covering of her bonnet.
She is no beauty, but like a blind date - has lots of character. Sometimes that is much more interesting than something of superficial beauty.
