At least that is what I would think at first look. But, this doll is so cute from the back I felt like it should be shown as important. The front of her is adorable and funny. The face is very unique and done by someone that clearly didn't want to embroider fancy features. She used celluloid rings for hanging curtains to outline the eyes and the black centers are shoe buttons. They sort of float in position so sometimes her eyes are looking in two different directions. Her nose is a gem and has been mended sort of with floss and her lips are cut out oilcloth that has been hand painted with red lips and very nicely drawn teeth and pasted in place. Her hair is the best! Someone actually pulled it in and out of her head with a curved needle, amazing. She has a pretty good forced sit and is 16" tall and very firmly stuffed with cotton. She has on a wonderful little blue calico dress. C. 1900
