This lovely painted face cloth doll has a shyness about her. Her eyes are really well painted and kind of talk to you. She has a very nice hand sewn body. Her face is framed with painted brownish red curls. She is all original including the paint on her face. She does have some thinning of the paint and a little loss but nothing serious. The back of her head is another story. I don't know what caused the back of the head to lose some of the outer painted cloth but there are two or three other layers so it isn't detrimental. She has applied ears, I always love that when maker goes the extra step and it makes them look so cute. She is firmly stuffed with rags and is very heavy. She has jointed arms but her legs are seamed but not so she bends easily. She does have a pretty good forced sit. She is a very nice all hand made painted face doll from the 19th C... 25" tall
