This 16 inch tall doll, circa the 1840s-50s, has a cloth body and a white leather head. The facial features are hand drawn and the hair is either human hair or mohair. The wig is old but may have been added later. The cotton cloth body, jointed at the shoulders, hips, and knees, is sturdy and clean. The wonderful dress and bonnet appear to be original to the doll. The cotton print dress shows fading and a few splits in the fabric. It seems to never have been removed from her since she was created. I did not want to risk damaging the fabric by trying to remove it. The doll also wears antique white cotton underclothing and great sunbonnet. While the head shows some wear to the facial features, this doll is quite appealing and unusual.
