This doll is from my own collection and I have had it for over twenty years. It is an unmarked tinted bisque shoulder head with set in brown glass eyes. She has a closed mouth and feathered eyebrows. Her head is turned which gives her a lovely sweetness. She is on her original cloth body and she has all her leather fingers. Her wig appears to be original and fits her like a glove. The marks on the back of her head are the glue residue I could not remove. She does have a 1/2" hairline on the back of her shoulder plate as you can see in the photos. I never knew about it until I undressed her. She was made around 1880 by a high quality firm like Alt, Beck & Gottschalk. Someone named her in life time with a label on her leg: "Felicia", a little girl or her previous owner? Her clothing is old. I don't know whether it is as old as she is. It consists of: cotton drawers, chemise, white petticoat (these might be original to her), a cotton and velvet dress, straw hat, cotton socks, and brown leather shoes. She is ready to display! She sits nicely or stands. Please look at all photos for condition
