This big folk art oil cloth doll has a lot going for her. She has heavy brush stroke painted face done by some no nonsense mother. She gave her a suggestion of curls around her face, no fussy curls here! She colored her lips a dark purple but definitely not bright red. Seeing that she is all oil cloth her body is very firm as well as her legs and arms. She has wear and some cracking to the paint but not through the oil cloth, which often happens. She has just a bit of flaking paint on the top of her head but actually most of the paint is firmly on the doll. She has many layers of under clothes and they have been washed and ironed at some point in the last 10 years or so. She has on leather shoes that look and feel like they have been on her most of her life. The thing that puzzles me with these shoes and doll shoes in general, how do they get worn out on the bottom? I don't get it! She is remarkable and folky and pretty cool. 25" tall and heavy and circa 1880
