Antique hand carved wooden shoulder head doll with a hand sewn cloth body. The head and face have never been painted or stained. She has defined hair. Her head and shoulders are one piece and are very nicely carved. Her body is cotton and stuffed with wood chips that has discolored the fabric. It smells like they are cedar chips or cedar sawdust. She is stuffed hard as a rock but is jointed at her knees and hips so she sits nicely and her arms are joined at the shoulders.. She has on a brown plaid dress that buttons up the back. The dress is hand sewn. She is twelve inches tall. Her dress has staining. She is pretty amazing and looks like she might be Appalachian. Circa 1870-80
