This beautiful doll has a clip at the bottom to attach it. I can only think it was for a dress maker to try styles of dresses on. I believe she is, judging from the face from the 1920's. She is made of perhaps a composition material, not porcelain and is in very good condition except for I believe 2 tears in the silk skirt. This is not noticeable because of the fullness of the skirt and the print. I did try to take a photo of one area. She is 11' from top to bottom. Her face and figure are wonderful as you can see from the photos.
