She stands at 19.5” tall on an antique cloth body, with leather arms, with individually stitched fingers, (some typical wear).
She wears a rose and cream antique pinstriped cotton dress with long sleeves and subtle lace cuff trim, with an overlaying white cotton and lace andtique apron.

CONDITION: The head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top quality modeling and painting of features. She has a few minor pepper spots, which are typical and expected for many china dolls. The embroidered headband is a later addition, set on top of the original painted and molded hairband. Her cloth body is antique, and is sturdy with tight stitching, and has only minor age and discoloration wear. Her leather arms are in good condition, with only some minor wear, and a minor patchwork repair to the left wrist; the fingers are all in good condition. The costume is good, with only minor and typical age wear. Overall, she’s a lovely doll!
