China head doll, lowbrow hairstyle, unusual expression and lovely clothing. This 14.5 inch young lady has a thoughtful, melancholy expression, and is in excellent condition, china has no chips, cracks or hairlines. Her shoulderhead is glued onto an old, possibly original body, with her original lowers arms and legs. Her upper arms and legs were recovered long ago. Her boots are an unusual dark mauve color. Her dress, a dress-weight polished cotton chintz, is wonderful and full, with tiny knife edge pleats. I am guessing 1940's for the dress. The dress is of later make than her underclothing. Her undergarments are much older than the dress and have been with her a long time. She wears two petticoats (sewn on) and knickers that are quite stained from age. She has shapely, well- formed hands: one of her thumbs was damaged at the factory and glazed over, but otherwise they are much better defined than many lowbrow china's hands. Her hair shows no rubs to the back. A very charming china doll who has been loved and cared for over many years.
