A most unusual black doll that has her name and owners initials written in brown ink on her bloomers. R.W. is on her right leg and DINA is on her left leg. Her face is nicely embroidered with lover's knots for pupils. She has brown floss hair that is just across her forehead, something I don't recall seeing before on any other doll. She is jointed at the shoulders and hips so she sits easily. I do feel her clothes are original. (Her cap is pinned on and is an addition.) She has on a ruby red bead necklace. She does have a hole in her face that has black cloth covering it so it is not as noticeable. She is cotton stuffed pretty firmly. She has sewn on crocheted little shoes that I think are a later addition. She is 15" tall and is circa 1880-90
