I love the way some dolls faces are drawn, it makes me laugh. Her eyes are right up near the top of her head, with outstanding eyelashes. She has a diamond shaped nose and a small oval drawn mouth. Never had hair, has a curvy wide hip body, firmly stuffed with cotton, attached arms, continuous legs that bend with a little force so she can sit. She has sewn on bloomers, and a worn checked dress that fits like it has been on her for a 100 years at least. On her legs are black stockings and great red/maroon shoes that are sewn on. Her face is over her original face. It was what we would call now, a face lift. The old one gets renewed so to speak. I have had dolls with 3 and 4 coverings. This one is way too good to peek at the older one. Once a face it lifted it never fits right again. (She has stains on her face, see pictures.) She is quite the doll. 22" tall and Circa 1890
