This 14 inch tall doll has a 3 ¼ inch tall china flat top shoulder head. The head, circa the 1860s, is of German origin. The body is antique and may be original to the doll. I love the early delicate china hands and the fancy tassel decorated gold luster heeled boots. The cloth body is jointed at the shoulders and hips. The head is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is a very slight roughness on the tip of the nose and the typical wear to the black paint of the hair. The doll wears an antique costume of cotton and silk. She also wears antique white cotton lace trimmed underclothing. The silk black check skirt shows much wear but is covered by the white cotton apron. I much prefer this antique authentic outfit with some wear to a replaced costume. She has obviously worn these clothes for many years and they suit her beautifully. I wouldn’t change and thing on this little historic treasure. She is a survivor of over 150 years and is perfect just as she is!
