Now this is a doll, rag stuffed and very heavy, sewn beautifully with a sculpture face. She has yarn hair and a red bandana kerchief tied on her head and I do think it is original and never been off. Her red calico dress has an interested replace panel in the front. It is threadbare and shows lots of wear and a few holes. She is fully jointed and really is in great condition. Her hands are stitched defined fingers and separate thumbs. Under her dress she has a petticoat and pantaloons made from feed sack material and they are treasures in themselves.
She is 18" tall but is one of those dolls that comes across as a smaller doll. She is very nice. Circa1890-1900
