This very large bold painted face cloth doll with an endearing face and quite the hair-do. Some mothers nightmare; she gives her daughter a painted face cloth doll with a painted hair and a real hair bun on top of her head. Next came the scissors and a quiet moment in the bedroom and voila the doll has a spiked hair-do. So here she is in all her glory, the dear sweet doll. I do think her shoe button eyes are a nice and different touch. Her body is big and very firm. She has great arms and articulated hands made of leather. She has on a child's antique red polka dot dress that is faded and worn and a couple of holes in the back. She came with it on and it does look like it has been on her for a long time. She is 26" tall and is late 1800's.
