This is an unusually large 21" tall Chinese mission made cloth doll with top knot, and original clothes including fancy embroidered red shoes. 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 red embroidered cotton slippers, striped print cotton pants and tunic, white cotton undershirt and white cotton socks.
Condition is original, with some old repairs to the tunic 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.
