This is an unusually large 21" tall Chinese mission made cloth doll with top knot and comes with a little bamboo cricket cage. The doll has a flat round face with skillfully simply inked facial features. The body and limbs are also skillfully but simply made in the shape of a chunky toddler body. The hands are chubby mitts with a tiny thumb. The doll is dressed in it original clothing consisting of worn blue embroidered silk slippers, blue cotton print pants and faded tunic, and topped by a blue silk jacket that is splitting along one side.

Condition is original but with age flaws as described and seen in photos.

The exact Chinese mission responsible for this line of cloth dolls has not yet been firmly identified. They would make an excellent research project. They are truly well made and charming dolls.
