This doll has such a strong face. She has intense eyes, a very large nose and a make-do mouth with fabric. She has astrakhan hair. Her face is stockinette and it is tied off by me at her neck. When I bought her someone had cut the stitches holding the fabric around her chest shoulders and back probably wondering if she had a face underneath. (SHE DOESN"T). It could be sewn back down but I think the tie looks good and does the job, what's more you can peak under if you want to. Her red calico dress has the look and feel of being on her for a very long while. She had stitched defined fingers with separate thumbs. She has sturdy chubby little legs with interesting gathering to give her leg a more substantial look. She is a standing doll and is really good at it. She has on shoes that look like they could be original. She is firmly stuffed with cotton. She is a no nonsense woman and I don't thinks she likes to be kidded with. She would keep everyone in line but in a kindly way. She is 23" tall and is circa 1890.
