This doll is the first kind of cloth dolls that started to come to market in the 1970's. There were not many cloth dolls in shops or at shows but when I found them they were sort of like this. Simple and straight forward. She has the early hour glass figure and adding to that look is a serious leather corset that was probably made from the top of an old shoe. She is hand sewn, cotton stuffed rather firmly, nicely shaped feet, one nice leather shoe over black stockings. Her arms stop abrubtly at her wrists where she once had hands. Under her blue calico antique dress is a hand sewn blue silk skirt lined with a unbleached fine muslin lining that maybe original to her. She is a very nice tall doll with petite structure. She has a little bit of a forced sit. She is a New England rag doll, 19" tall and circ 1880.
