This 22 inch tall doll, circa the last quarter of the 19th century, has an oil painted face and brunette human hair wig. She has a sturdy clean cloth body that is jointed at the shoulders and hips and an artistically oil painted face. The beautiful lady wears antique white cotton underclothing and an antique white cotton print dotted Swiss dress with lace trim. The clothing appears to be original to the doll. In fact, I think she is all original except for the possible addition of later jewelry. I just couldn’t take the jewelry addition away from her! She also wears red stockings and brown leather shoes. I think this doll is fabulous and find the facial painting to be skillful and alluring. If you collect early cloth dolls, she is a must!
