This doll has the best folky rectangular head. She has a nicely drawn pencil face with a kindly smile and the U shaped nose that comes directly from her eyebrows. Her body is all original and is jointed at the shoulders, hips and knees. She comes as found and I think her clothes have been on a long time. I didn't take them off because the upper arms of the dress fit very tightly and I don't want to rip the dress getting it off and on. She has on back high top shoes, cream colored socks, an antique pair of pantaloons and antique petticoat. Her antique brown calico dress that is fabulous and an Amish bonnet that makes her look like she might be a Mennonite doll. She is stuffed with cotton fairly firmly and has a defined waist. She has 4 or 5 tiny holes on her face that I can't imagine how they got there. She is big and folky and makes a great statement sitting in a chair. Circa 1880-90
