Papier mache milliner's model with a hairstyle dating her to the 1840’s. Kid leather body, in very good condition. Wooden lower arms and legs, little yellow shoes. This is the original paint- there are no touch ups or repaints. Charming dress and knickers handmade for her by a previous owner. Her knickers are sewn on. All seems fine underneath. She is 10.5 inches tall. Beautiful brushstrokes to her hair. There are cracks to her shoulder plate, as is common in these dolls. Paint chips to her arms and legs, missing right thumb. One red tape on her right elbow is missing. Her face is fascinating- this is an early doll with much history, and she is well preserved.
