This tall lollipop head pencil face doll has lots to tell. One look at her body tells you many hands have fixed her up. She has one replaced arm, patches and holes on her legs and feet. She has the tiniest of a waist and the biggest of the hips that I have seen. She is nice and early and is all hand sewn. Her pantaloons have been on her so long they look like her body. Her dress is all hand sewn and in tatters here and there. She has a face on either side of her head and she has feet that turn in so she can and has been used both ways. She is stuffed with cotton and her head and body are quite firm and her arms and legs are a little softer. I like it when a doll tells you something about herself and this one does. 24" tall and 1870-80
