This lovely black cloth doll has real lambs wool hair, a sculptured face, jet bead eyes, raised nose and nicely embroidered mouth. Her face and shoulders are stockinette and the rest of her is made with polished cotton. When you think about it, stockinette is stretchy and easier to make a realistic face and the cotton is more durable for the body. She has attached arms and legs so she moves easily. She has two pig tails that are adorable. The black and gray calico dress is trimmed with red, with a petticoat and a slip under it. The clothes are old and the way I got her but I don't feel they are original. She is 22" tall, stuffed with cotton with a nice give when you squeezer her. She is C. 1880-90 and is in great condition.
