This doll has a beautiful face with feathered eye brows, set in blue glass eyes, painted eye lashes, blushed cheeks and well defined rosy lips with a dark line between them. Her blonde hair is styled in curls around her face with a series of vertical curls around the back. Her head is mounted on a shoulder plate and moves. There are no markings on either the head or the shoulder plate. Her head is on a cloth body with lower bisque arms and hands. The right hand has been professionally repaired. The body is hair stuffed. The feet are leather boots that are sewn and have had some repair. Her clothing is original to her: cotton drawers, cotton petticoat, pink wool petticoat, and elaborate blue and white silk court dress with gold braid and sequins. The dress is fragile so I did not take it off the doll for fear of damaging it. The doll dates from 1870 by an unknown maker. She is 17" tall and ready to display.
