Antique doll dress and bonnet for shoulderhead china, wax, compo or papiermache doll. Structurally the dress is in good condition but needs to be cleaned - it has not been laundered and has dark age discoloration to the lace at neckline, sleeves and collar. The front of the dress is not as bright at the material on the back of the dress. The dress bodice is lined. The matching bonnet has velvet fabric flowers and lined in pink silk. The silk is shattering exposing the buckram form - the hat is limp without any stiffening or wire form - the velvet flowers are limp and worn too.

The waist is 11 1/2 inches all the way around. The back is open and has a safety pin at the neck. The dress was made with a combination of machine and hand stitching.
The bonnet is approximately 5 x 4 1/2 inches. It has a black velvet ribbon bow and trim. Note please the pink silk is shredding.
