This 25 inch tall doll, circa 1850s-60s, has a poured wax turned shoulder head with the original cloth body and wax lower arms and legs. The doll has inset human hair and blue glass eyes. The cloth body is sturdy and jointed at the shoulders and hips. The head is in good condition. The arms and legs show some repair and restoration of the wax. Hopefully, the photos will show the repair. The ends of the fingers on the right hand are missing and the index finger is missing on the left hand. The doll wears a later white cotton petticoat and a beautiful sheer dress. She does not have any shoes or socks. I have had this doll in my collection for several years as I just love the face and those gorgeous blue eyes.
