This is an Antique Greiner Style Papier Mache Milliners Model Doll 11.5 Inch C1850 Original Clothing. This lovely doll has carved wood arms and legs and a papier mache shoulderhead. Her hands are beautifully carved and she has painted blue boots. She has the Greiner hairstyle with comb lines/brushwork in black paint, ears showing and sausage curls in the back. It is hard to tell, but the back of her head may have had some repaint a Long Time Ago (not all of her head, just portions in the back). Her entire face has also had some flesh tone repainting a Long Time Ago as that paint has old crazing to it. There is a hint of a double chin, rosy cheeks, outlined eyes and nose dots. Her Original light coral pink and light blue plaid silk dress is Actively Shattering to the point where the skirt is gone. The bodice style and design is there to use as a model for redressing if you so choose. She has her original lace trimmed petticoat, shorter white cotton flannel slip, another short slip and embroidered pantaloons.
