This big doll no nonsense painted face doll with kind eyes was made with a body and face that match. They are both strong looking, will withstand a lot and be a good companion for a little girl. She is the kindly auntie that can't be there all the time. She is stuffed firmly with rags with cotton stuffed arms and legs. The paint is more a water color than an oil paint. It is flat color and sinks into the fabric. Her lips are the only exception, they are painted with a bittersweet oil paint. She is all original and all hand sewn with really nice even small stitches. The sewing is a work of art. She has mitten hands and black painted socks. Her calico dress came with her and looks like it has been on her for quite a while. She is 22" tall and is circa 1890.
