Antique black stockinette doll with heavy wool fabric for hair that is very effective and I haven't seen it used before. She has a very nice embroidered face with a raised nose, there is some wear to the face. She is wearing an age appropriate dress and underclothes and does have her original leather shoes. She is stuffed firmly with cotton but her lower arms and legs are filled with sand. She is all hand sewn. Incorporated in her body is a wooden stick of substantial heft that keeps her head from flopping. This is a nice feature and I wish more dolls had it. She is a wonderful early black doll from a collection in Maine. Circa 1870-80
