This lovely homespun rolled linen doll is lovely in her simplicity. If she had a pencil face there is nothing left now except your imagination. She is all rolled or more the terminology is folded or wrapped. Her arms still show and looked rolled. The bottom half of her legs have been recovered but you can peek underand see the origina homespun leg is still there. Her dress, that looks original, is homespun linen with a mustard yellow hand block printed design that has been pinned probably fairly recently to keep it on her. She is as found and still wearing her brown fabric sewn on boots.This 16" firmly rolled cloth doll is a lovely time capsule from the 1840's.
