This is an Antique Papier Paper Mache Milliners Model Doll Wood Leather Body Original Embroidered Outfit. This wonderful 7 1/2 inch milliners model doll has carved wood arms and legs (a little bit of paint loss under the clothing), and a leather covered wood body?. She dates to mid nineteenth century. Her cheeks and chin may have been lightly touched up by the family as she is an estate piece. There is some small flaking to the black paint on the right side of her head and to the back of her left foot. Her clothing is original and wonderful. The beautifully handstitched sheer cotton muslin dress has skillfully done fine tambour work floral embroidery around the skirt hemline and pantaloons.
