Antique Papier mache milliner's model with Apollo top knot hairstyle, which dates her to the 1830's. Kid leather body, wooden lower arms and legs, unusual pink boots. Dress and undergarments made for her by previous owner from antique fabrics, in a modified Regency style. She is 11 inches tall. Clothing is sewn on so I cannot remove to show entire body, but you can see there is damage to the back of her shoulder plate, as is common in these dolls. There are some paint chips to her arms and legs, and repaired knees. Her leather body, as far as I can see, appears to be in fine condition. Her face, well painted, has a pensive expression-- this doll has seen a lot.
