Early Antique 16 Inch Apollo Knot Papier Mache Doll Milliner Model c.1830
They just don't do hair these days like they did in the 1830's! Ladies of her day used curled hairpieces and false braids to achieve these fantastic coiffures. This is a wonderful 'Apollo' knot antique doll made of papier mache with painted features. She has her original leather body with lower carved wooden arms and legs.
Her face has been professionally touched up in a couple of areas but the majority of this doll is original.
She is wearing a handmade early red printed calico dress over an old petticoat and pantaloons. Her wonderful hairstyle is a treasure to have in your collection - every collection needs one like this! Circa 1830.
She is from a smoke free environment.
