This 13" needle sculpture painted black doll is so much nicer than most. Someone spent a lot of time hand sewing and painting her features. She has ears and yarn hair sewn on but spotty at this point. She has a curvy little stockinette body. Her homespun, (really homespun) butterscotch checked dress even has a pocket in it. She is cotton stuffed pretty firmly. Her hands have long thumbs and stitched defined fingers. She sits easily. I think it is possible that her dress is original. Over her dress she has a hand sewn apron. She is as found. He face has the condition situation that most stockinette dolls have, the top layer looses it's strength and is missing in a lot of places but there are two layers of the stocking so you see that some is missing but the other layer makes it much easier on the eyes. She is a special small 1880 home made black doll that is 13" tall.
