This 14 ½ inch tall doll, circa the late 19th century, is a hand sewn cotton cloth doll with an ink drawn face. She is jointed at the shoulders, knees, and hips. The doll, which has been loved in the past and does show some wear, is clean and sturdy with some age discoloration. The face is artistically rendered with a circular spot of red blush on her right cheek but her left cheek blush has faded over time. The doll wears a cotton check dress with black trim. The antique dress, which is sewn onto the doll, is in fair condition with some tears and the left shoulder ruffle missing. I adore the gorgeous antique lace bonnet. I find these handmade dolls so charming and always wonder about their lives with loving children of the past.
