Sophie Smith Style China 8 ½ inch China with Sausage Curls. She is a very pretty petite German china doll 1850 with a Sophie Smith Style Hair do, sausage curls surrounding the nape of the neck with a center part. The doll has a very early china shoulder head on a cloth milliner style body with wood arms and legs with flat shoes. The doll is wearing a black satin taffeta dress with lace trim. She is a very pretty early doll with some minor peppering. It looks in the photo like there is a line on the back shoulder plate, it is a thin tread from the dress, not a crack on the doll.
