A very simple and sweet early rag doll with a embroidered face. Here eyebrows and nose are one continuous line that I think is indicative of a Pennsylvania doll. She is made with black stockinette, hand sewn and stuffed with rags. Her face is very nicely done with tiny stitches with a thin natural floss. I like the oval mouth and makes me think of a book I recently read that referred to the child's mouth as a "pie hole". Her cloths are a miss match of calico salvaged materials that are not fake but are put together and look like they have been on her a long time. She is 13" tall and circa 1890-1900.
