This nice antique cloth doll has the eighteen hundreds straight red embroidered line for a mouth that allows her to have many or none emotions. She has two dots for a nose but the mother went the extra length to put stuffing under to give her a raised nose. She has really nicely embroidered eyes with little stitched eyelashes on the top lids. She has astrakhan trim hair that is firmly stitched on. She has jointed arms and the knees are stitched to bend so she sits easily. She is all hand sewn, her hands are stitched defined fingers with separate thumbs. Her dress is age appropriate as well as her pantaloons and pinafore. She has on black cotton stocking that cover 3/4 of her legs and she has on high button tan felt shoes that look like suede. They fit her perfectly and might have been made for her, they are old. This doll has a lot going for her.
