This very nice black cloth doll has been rescued more than once. She has a mend and some holes on her face, one hand is losing the stuffing and one leather boot has been resewn on. She has a white body and black arms, legs and head. It is not unusual for a cloth doll, be it black or white doll, to have reused parts from a fancy store bought doll that has a broken china or bisque head. It is just more noticeable with a black doll. Her underclothes fit her like a glove as well as the soft red dress. Her face is nicely embroidered with eyelashes giving her a little bit of a surprised look. She is 17" tall and is circa 1880-90
