This 12 ¾ inch tall doll has a 2 ½ inch tall china head, circa the early 1850s, manufactured in Germany by Kestner & Company. The china head has a covered wagon hairstyle. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is a small amount of the typical wear to the black hair paint on the back of the head. The cloth body is jointed at the shoulders and hips and is a crudely, but appealingly, homemade body that is somewhat out of proportion to the china head. The doll wears a cotton underclothing and a red print cotton dress with an ecru print cotton apron. I love the slightly over sized body as I can picture a young owner of the past hugging and treasuring this sweet doll.
