This little girl has a lot of personality at 7" tall. Her expression is lively and attentive--as if she's ready to speak. Her light blue dress and bonnet are original and are sewn on her composition body so there's no removing them. Her head swivels and her blue glass eyes do not sleep. She's strung nicely and is ready to enjoy in a doll cabinet or room setting. Everything about her is clean and in wonderful condition. She has an elaborate mark on the back of her little head--including what looks like a sunburst, but not like the Heubach sunburst. The markings are faint and I can't make them out entirely myself, but perhaps someone can from the photograph. From about 1900-1910.
I try to imagine where children found these dolls. Department stores, certainly, but dolls such as this sweet girl were also sold at recreational venues like zoos and theaters and beach-side souvenir shops. Perhaps she came in box that bore a store's name--or the name of a known destination, like 'Niagra Falls'.
Anyway... She happily looks forward to a new destination with a new friend.
