This doll has a broad smile with lots of teeth showing, if you look carefully you can see the corners of her mouth turn up but at a quick glance she looks grimacing. (The little girl that this doll was made for I bet had a great smile with lots of teeth.) She has shoe button eyes, knotted yarn hair and curvy cotton stuffed body. On her back there is a strip of fabric that looks like a zipper but is a covered wooden stick that goes up her back in into the back of her head. I have had dolls with sticks of wood inside the body but this was a clever and easier way I would think of getting the job done. There is a hole at the base of the back of her head where the wood has worn through. It is fun to see a doll that is different.
She is 20" tall and is C. 1890.
