This milliners model doll is 8 1/2" tall and has a cloth body and wooden arms and legs. Her face is nicely painted and her hair is the tuck comb hair style with painted ringlets around her face. I have used a black light on her and even to they eye you can see the shoulder plate back and front has had some restoration. Her face has a little painting around her chin and a little on her cheek but most of the paint on her face is original. She does have some hairline cracks on her face, see pictures. I feel her underclothes are original or as old as she is but her dress I think was made in the late 1800's not in 1820. The dress is lovely and looks to be all hand sewn by an expert seamstress. She still has her original body, wooden arms and legs and original painted on green shoes. Circa 1820-30
