This 20 inch tall doll, circa the early 20th century, is created from straw stuffed black cotton cloth. She has embroidered facial features and a needle sculpted nose with a slightly turned head. Her curly hair is created from black wool yarn. She has a satin dress that is probably original to her accompanied by satin slippers. The dress does show some age discoloration and a few holes. I did not attempt to remove it as it is sewn onto the doll. The underwear is white cotton with lace trim. The body is sturdy and clean with a few small holes and an opening in the seam on the right neck. She is jointed at the shoulders and hips but is so tightly stuffed that she cannot sit. I adore her individually sewn fingers with red embroidered fingernails. The lady is adorned with one beaded earring and may have originally had two.
