Sometimes a doll can be appreciated for the marvel of the maker and the caretakers of a doll. She has had loving hands restore her body more than once with really skilled hands. Her body is fashioned like a leather body but there is no leather under this doll's layers of jersey, cotton, linen and maybe a little wool. Her body is so interesting that she would look good exhibited without clothes. She is very firmly stuffed with rags. Her simplistic face is adorable with bead eyes a protruding nose and a simple line mouth. I believe there is another earlier face underneath. I think I have done a good job of not telling you how cute she is, but I will say that she might have been a prototype for a cabbage patch doll...Really too cute for words. 28" tall, circa 1870-80
