A cherubic face in wax with brown enamel sleep eyes, endearing, tight blond mohair curls, a turned shoulder head, early arms of tan leather and separately stitched fingers, a firm, horse hair stuffed, cloth body with jointing at the shoulders, hips and knees caused by extra stitching, and sewn in pink leather boots with side button detail and lower legs of pink and cream striped stockings. This of course is a continuation of the wonderful rose cotton costume she wears that features repeated pleating, ruffling and lace detail. Her cloth hat has age, but is not original to her. Equally impressive as her outer garment are her crisp, original undergarments, all with matching trim and starched to perfection when she was made. She comfortably sits as well as stands, and when laying down, she goes to sleep!
