Sometimes I wonder about the history of a cloth doll and this one does has some recent clues. She was sold by Theriault's Auction house in 1889 and she comes with the catalog. Her face is very realistic and in very good condition. She has big folk art hands on short stubby arms. She has a very big firm body with again the bold stance legs. She has jointed arms but her legs are continuous. She does sort of sit with her legs bending at about the knee. She is wearing knit underwear sewn on to her body and then a nice old soft blue calico dress. Pinned on her head is a brown dolls wig. I don't see any condition problems. She is 20" tall and circa 1890.
