This doll was bought in the mid west and had to have been made by an older child or a mother doing the best she could with what she had. She is firmly straw stuffed. Her face is stitched with heavy thread. Her mouth is stitched with the use of many "xxx"s and it looks great. Her nose is pinched raised with overcasting thread. Her eyes are framed with red stitches and her eyes and eyebrows are brown thread. Her red bonnet is sewn on as are her clothes. She has a lace collar, green shawl that is a cute piece of fabric cut in a triangle and it looks fine, a blue blouse with only one sleeve. Her skirt is pink and white striped flannel that is so big is goes around twice but fits her fine and looks good. I think her clothes are all original and the stump never had legs attached...see picture of stump. She is a very dear, loved, mid western prairie doll. She is 8" tall and 10" to the end of her skirt. She is 1870-80.
