A very nice homemade and home painted cloth doll with fabulous blue eyes. She is all hand sewn and her face is oil painted on linen and sewn onto the front half of her head. ( A common way of a homemade painted face doll). Her hat is sewn on and it looks like it is covering a small hole just above her hair line. I didn't want to cut off her hat but the hole doesn't look any bigger than 1/4". At her neck she also has a one inch tear in the material...please see pictures. She has a stockinette fabric body and is fairly firmly stuffed. She has on a fine cotton dress with a petticoat of similar shear soft fabric. She is 16" and is circa 1900-1910. She has a very sweet and proper face.
