This beauty is a one of a kind painted face doll is a great example of a talented mother or aunt hand sewing and painted the fabric on the head and face to provide their child with a doll that strongly resembled the bisque and china dolls found in department stores or bought from Europe. She is beautifully painted with no touch up or repair. She has some slight age discoloration that you would expect from a doll this age. Her body is sound with no splits or breaks. Her underclothes consist of pantaloons, and a slip and then a heavier slip and a camisole. Her dress is exquisite and fits her perfectly. She has on red antique leather shoes and pink socks. She is firmly stuffed with cotton. She is jointed at the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. She is wonderful.
