This big doll with sepia ink face would feel comfortable anywhere. She is kind of like a old worn shoe. Her clothes are make do with the apron too big but made to work. She has just a hint of a smile and by the time I took the 30th picture I knew she had me. She is not photogenic and yet she looks wonderful in person. The smile was saying plenty!
She has a very interesting construction on the top of her head...see photo. Her hands are fragile and have been mended a few times. She is jointed at her shoulders, hips and knees. She has on a gray checked dress that is as old as she is and is nicely lined at the top with white cotton fabric. There are two buttons at the back with hand sewn button holes. And she has a gray oversized apron on that is old also. She is 31" tall and is circa 1890-1900.
