Not often do I get a doll that has documentation of the maker, this doll does. She is all original with a red calico dress and bandana, white apron, petticoat and bloomers. Her body and legs are made of wood and she has big flat shoes that probably allowed her to stand alone but she is old now and doesn't do that well. I am trying not to relate to that! On the bottom of her shoe, written in nice script is, Mrs. Jefferson Davis at Louis at New Orleans, La.
She has in her right hand a handmade and crotched basket and a cardboard fan in her left hand. Her stockinette face has oil painted features and soft red painted cheeks. She is a very interesting and unique black doll, 12" tall and is circa 1890-1910
