This cloth doll has very dear oil painted face with great soft blue eyes. She has leather hands that could be original by the way they are put on. (I bet some mother was proud of herself for thinking of using old children's gloves for unique hands!) She has the body form, like so many cloth dolls, that looks like they were meant to ride a horse. The stance gives her the look of authority. She is cotton stuffed rather firmly and because she is not jointed she is pretty much a standing doll. She has on pants and petticoat and a full white dress. On her head she has a black stocking for hair that ends in a braid going down her back, very ingenious! She has a very nice tidy repair on the right side of her face that the black stocking covers. She also has a repair on the side of her neck. She is circa 1880 and is 21" tall. She has an old note pinned to her giving her history starting in 1880...see last picture.
