Composition doll without maker's marks has a head that resembles those made by Royal Dolls. I've circulated the photos amongst my doll dealer friends and nobody has been able to identify it.
The doll measures about 10" tall as shown seated on her wheeled apparatus. If measured from head to hip, then to feet, she would likely measure about 16" when standing.
She has painted features with brown eyes and glossy black pupils, red lips, and brown outlined eyes. Her molded hair is deep brown. She has a pink cotton cloth body with excelsior stuffing. As shown, there is significant tearing to the back of the body and the lower legs, though in good condition, show a good deal of soiling to the stockings. The face has minimal crazing and there is paint wear to the left eye. The back of her head and neck has cracking with some of the composition top layer gone as shown. The underneath is in excellent sturdy condition as shown.
Her pink cotton lawn costume is lovely and in excellent condition.
A very unusual little doll, so sweet on her wheels. Some mending and reinforcement to the fabric on her back and seat would make her in good shape again and she displays very nicely just as she is with her damage hidden under her lovely costume.
I have priced her very reasonably when you take into account the value of her costume alone.
