This is an Antique C1850 Milliners Model Papier Mache Wood Doll Leather Body Long Sausage Curls 12.5 Inch. Her papier mache shoulderhead is in good condition. She has a beautiful mid 19th century hairstyle with six long and thick sausage curls. Both leather upper arms have some damage including the upper left arm which has some deterioration to the leather allowing some sawdust to escape. Her right arm apparently had some damage but has some repair tape there. The arms and legs are carved and painted wood. Her legs are long and slender with painted blue shoes. Her hand stitched costuming is all original including a lace trimmed silk blouse (it is shattering) and white cotton dimity skirt, matching petticoat and cotton pantaloons (some all over age staining). Someone has added a black vinyl belt to her waist and I left it there. The glare on her chest is from the camera. She has a tiny rub to the very tip of her nose and a rub to her left cheek.
