This doll is very beautiful with very delicate features. Her eyes are sewn on pieces of leather, one is only 3/4 there now. They are stitched on and her eyebrows are done with a cross stitch that is very effective. Her nose is raised and stitched and her mouth is a few stitches of red thread, probably more at one time. She had astrakhan hair but now all is left is the brown fabric with head scarf over it. She has fine little leather hands with fingers and thumbs all separate but now one is missing and the other is hanging with no stuffing anymore. She has a round full curvy body, jointed shoulders, hips and knees. She has on layers of underclothes and a brown flannel skirt with a white blouse. Everything is old but not original but is as found. She has sweet homemade leather shoes and high top black socks. She is very firmly stuffed with something crunchy, hay or straw or something like that. She is a lovely example of an antique black cloth doll. She is from a 40 year collection. 21" tall and C. 1880
