Such a sweet heart with a very dainty stitched face in red and yellow thread. For such an early face it is a surprise to see that there is another one under this face. I would never remove it but it for some reason got recovered. Reminds me of a Christmas morning when I got just what I wanted, a Little LULU doll and was so thrilled. I was 8 years old, put her in my bicycle basket and rode my bike to show my best friend up the street. It was a warm NE Christmas, I hit a bump and Little Lulu ended face down in a puddle. It was a very sad Christmas, I still hurt to think about it. My folks were not in the position to go out an buy another, I knew not to even ask. I still have her and it still hurts to look at her...so maybe something like that happened to the dolls face.
She is nice and early, she has a wonderful flannel petticoat under her blue dress, that is antique but the hem has been taken up more recently. She is jointed and sits nicely. She is 19" tall. C. 1880
