Extremely early bedpost doll with carved features. She is 13" tall, with very nice turnings. She has attached cloth arms that are old but not original. At least one older tack remains from the earlier arms. She is solid, heavy, no worm holes, but there are a few nail holes near the base on one side. She is wearing a very early dress that is woven rather than printed. It is hand sewn and from the same time frame but my guess is that it is not original. Her hair is tacked on and is not as old as she is. The bonnet is not as old either and I think I may have put it on her. At the bottom of the last 3" of the post, there are two cut layers as to represent layers of clothing, dress and petticoat under, sort of thing. I have owned her for many years. She is a fine example of a early bedpost doll. C.1820 and 13" tall
