This is a charming all original circa 1860s - 1870s German china head doll on her original home made cloth body. This doll has a flat top hair style. The body has flat stitched fingers on the hands and small feet with upturned toes. She is wearing a sweet set of antique clothing consisting of white cotton chemise and pantaloons, wool petticoat, and red cotton dress with lace trim around bodice and edging above the hemline.
Condition: The china shoulder head is in good condition. Not chips, cracks or repairs and only minor hair color wear in the back. Body had typical age discoloration. The trim around the bodice of the red dress is shredding but could be easily replaced.
It is hard to find dolls of this era that have retained their original body as this one has. I like the folksy charm of these body types.
