This 12 inch tall doll, circa the 1880s-90s, was manufactured in Germany. She retains her original cloth body with china lower limbs ending in black heeled painted boots. The doll has a china shoulder head with blue eyes and a black hairstyle and partially exposed ears. She wears antique white cotton underclothing and a brown cotton plaid dress with an inset velveteen bodice. I believe this costume is original to the doll or was made specifically for her shortly after her original purchase. The head is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The right leg has been broken at the ankle and then glued and repaired. The cloth body is sturdy with a repair where the cloth has split at the waist. I love the early look of this doll with her antique dress. She has nicely painted facial features.
