This 19 inch tall doll, circa the 1860s, was manufactured in Germany. She has a wax over composition head with molded blonde hair, blue glass eyes, and a closed mouth. The original cloth body has wooden lower arms and legs with molded and painted orange shoes. The doll is in very good condition for this type of doll with some wear on one of the curls at the back or her head. The body is sturdy and clean. The doll wears a wonderful antique costume of white cotton underclothing and a fabulous early blue and white striped cotton dress. The clothing is of the same period as the doll and may be original to her. I love theses early dolls as they are survivors and this one has a particularly interesting face with those striking blue glass eyes.
