This 23 inch tall doll, circa the 1890s, has a cloth body with china lower arms with a 5 inch tall shoulder head. She has a black painted low brow black painted hairstyle and painted facial features. The lower legs of the body have red fabric representing stockings and black leatherette boots. The doll was manufactured by the German Hertwig firm. The head has no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is some typical wear to the black paint on the back of the head. This lady wears antique white cotton lace trimmed underclothing and a more contemporary, but appropriate, two piece red velvet dress.
