This doll is a truly homemade doll with home dyed fabric. Black dyes were not all that stable and a do-it-yourself dye job faded easily with exposure to sun. She has a funny pattern of fading so she must have sat in the same place for years. Part of one leg is light and parts of her hand but not other parts. Just interesting but not significant. She is hand sewn and is a bit lumpy with rag and cotton stuffing. Her face is nicely embroidered. She poses nicely and showed it off in the first picture. She is 17" tall, every thing about her is faded and wrinkled. I bought her in the late 1970's. Circa 1910
