There were a lot of topsy turvy dolls made by mothers in the late 1800s and early 1900's that were very nice but this is a bit earlier than that and has some nice qualities. She is made with linen and cotton. Her white face is linen and her arms are rolled linen. Her black face is a very fine early black cotton with a glaze. Both faces are delicately sewn with the finest threads and the smallest of stitches. She is all hand sewn. There are no rips or tears but there are some stains on the dresses and the white dolls face. She is really magnificent to look at. She is 12" from head top to head top and is 15" from top of head to hem of skirt. She is made with two wonderful print dresses, one rose and cream colored and the other a blue calico print with great circles and black lines. She is quite a doll. Circa 1860's
