This large 32 inch tall doll, circa 1860, has an oil painted face and a cloth body jointed at the shoulders and hips. The oil painted face shows wear and has darkened with age but does not look as dark in person as in my photos. They just do not do this doll justice. The doll is in good clean condition. I believe she is wearing her original outfit including white cotton underclothing, a dark pink cotton dress, a white bonnet, black stockings, and black leather buttons shoes. The underwear has the name “Susie” written in scrip. Possibly that is the doll’s name. Tucked into one of her stockings was the small piece of paper that I have photographed. This wonderful little piece of history tells of the doll’s provenance. The message reads, “ ‘Mother’s Aunt’ b. 1842//cap. Real Val lace//Nuns at Mt. Aloyaius//at Loretta painted//the face. Doll circa 60.” What a great and appealing early cloth doll with a history!!
