This outstanding doll is in incredible condition and comes from a lifelong doll collector who kept her items cabinet housed. It was rarely handled. Her layers of clothing including her outer skirt (ruffled in back...amazing) and fitted bodice top are completely original. Body is cloth. She is either a heavy paper mâché or composition of some type with a coating of wax...her blue paperweight eyes are permanently set. Her shoulder head (see pictures) reveal age lines but there is no damage or repairs other than her normal age. Her boots are amazing...the quality of detail is remarkable. Hands and arms are perfectly intact and in excellent quality for a doll that dates this old. She is a whopping 25" tall as measured from center of top of head to toe. Her hair is remarkable well molded (see pictures) and this doll has a wonderful feel to her. She wears an original micro beaded glass necklace and an enamel stick pin was added to her ensemble at some point in the early 1900's, Definitely a museum worthy lady...and a true piece of history.
