Very early linen doll with rag stuffed body, rolled legs and raw wool stuffed arms. She has lost the ends of her arms a long time ago. She probably had a pencil face but that is not visible any longer. The back of her head has been dyed with what looks like tincture of iodine to make it look like hair. Her chest feels like she has wood with the stuffing, she could have a wooden heart in there? She is all hand sewn, has sewn on pantaloons, a sheer linen or linen and silk under dress and then a circa 1840 dress that I put on her years ago. This is a very nice very early doll. She is 11" tall and is circa 1840-60
