Circa 1860s cloth doll body with slip-covered upper torso and replacement parian arms.
Body measures 14 inches long from top of torso to bottom of feet. 4 inches across the upper torso where the shoulder head will fit and about 2-1/2 inches thick front to back.
The body is beautifully made and I have not removed the slip covered upper torso fabric to inspect underneath. It is likely that this was added to make the upper torso thicker.
Note: The head that was on this body measured as follows: 5 inches tall from top of head to base of plate; shoulders 3-3/4 inches across and 2-3/8 inches deep front to back.
