This fine black doll is in wonderful condition. Her face is embroidered and her eyes are jet buttons that are very effective and her hair is astrakhan (lambs wool used for trim on coats in the late 1800's). Her arms are attached at her shoulders, her legs are continuous but she sits easily. She is wearing an early black skirt, a black calico dress over the skirt, and then a red apron/skirt over the dress. Her arms and legs have been recovered at some point but show wear and age so they have been that way a while.
She is firmly stuffed with cotton. She is 22" tall and very lovely. C. 1890
