This big beautiful black doll has the finest embroidered eyes, I needed a magnifier to see how they were sewn. She has a pinched nose and a simple two line mouth. The maker was certainly more interested in her eyes than her mouth. Her hair is the astrakhan trim material and it is worn a little around her face. Her body is all original and packed firmly with cotton. Her shoulders, hips and knees are jointed so she sits nicely. Her dress fits like a glove and it is a good thing because her shoulders are compromised and the sleeves fit so nicely they take the stress off her attached arms. All her clothes are antique including the very nice red calico dress, petticoat and bloomers. Her black socks are sewn on and she has no shoes. She has a little tear on her back, see pictures and on her neck the seam has been restitched for about an inch. This doll is all hand sewn and is a really nice example of a late 19th century black cloth doll. She is 25" tall and is circa 1890
