This 15 inch tall doll, circa the 1860s, has a carved wooden head manufactured in Germany. The 4 ½ inch tall shoulder head has carved and painted facial features and hair with a rather elaborate hairstyle displaying a bun in the back. The head is in excellent condition with no repaint. There is a small missing piece on the left front corner of the shoulder plate. The doll has a cloth body jointed at the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, and knees. The lower arms are created from kid leather. The lovely lady wears antique white lace trimmed underclothing, old socks and antique leather shoes. Her dress is a gorgeous antique red and pink cotton print dress with a button front and antique trim. I love the deeply carved hair and the perky smile of this early wooden doll crafted in Germany.
