This Chinese, Old Lady doll measures 13" tall and the stand adds another 3/4". She is from about the 1920's -30's and has a composition shoulder head, lower arms, and legs. Her body is formed from hard packed straw, paper and wire. She has, painted, molded hair, with painted brush strokes and a painted molded hair accessory in her bun and painted facial features with much detail, to her face, lashes and brows and a lovely smile. She has earrings. Her original clothing is silk with age fading. Please notice the difference in color on her pants. In one of her hands, she holds a long pipe and, in the other, she is carrying a silk bag, maybe for what goes into her pipe. I occasionally, see similar dolls, but none in this wonderful condition. with only a few paint rubs here and there. On the bottom, of her wood stand, is stamped Made in China and also a cloth label with a AJ5, I think.
