Paper Mache shoulderhead Milliners model, circa 1840's, in her original costume of a German or Swiss countryside region, standing 10 1/2". Her braided rear bun with ears covered frames her peaceful expression, blue painted eyes, slightly blushed cheeks and subtle smile. She has a slim leather body with lower arms and legs of carved wood and painted yellow slippers. She wears a simple costume of an ecru cotton blouse, black velvet vest, and organdy diaphanous over-skirt with red cord trim appearing on each piece. Her ecru cotton undergarments are beneath. There is some expected surface wear to her original facial paint surface and at one point she must have carried a basket in her left hand of which the handle only remains.
