This is a really big cloth doll all hand sewn, stuffed firmly with rags (she is very heavy), has mitten hands so her thumbs are separate and her fingers are stitch defined. She has been recovered and repaired lots of times but are very old, no new sewing. She is wearing red and cream antique calico dress that probably was a child's dress and a pinafore over it and a brown tiny checked bonnet. Her legs are continuous with her body but she sits easily. Her face is embroidered with brown eyes and eyebrows, floss that sticks up just a little and a very nice shaped mouth that has faded to almost the color of her face. She is 24" tall and circa1890. She is an old fashion great cloth doll.
