Wonderful doll is this one made during the 1920's by The Averill Manufacturing Company of New York. She has a composition shoulder head and limbs, cloth body. arms are tied on. Stiched hip joints. Blond human hair wig original to the doll, Beautiful big brown tin eyes with real eyelashes, one paint stroke eyebrows, open mouth with molded tongue and showing two upper baby teeth. She is in excellent condition for her age, composition is great with just a small line in one of her eyes, and some wear to the tips of her fingers. She fell like a real baby because of her 26" size. Her voice box is there but is not working. The factory Stamp can be read clearly in her cloth body. She wears original to her time clothes, bonnet ( it has holes and needs to be mended), shoes and socks. A doll for the serious Madame Hendren doll collector!
***One of her legs needs to be attached to the cloth body, otherwise in great condition.
