This little doll is sweet and pathetic. She is all hand sewn with a small but lazy stitch. Her embroidered eyes are slanting in a way that makes her look sad. She is a center seam face doll and I really like the center seam dolls because they have a raised nose and chin but this girl has them flattened like a pancake. She has no chin and no mouth and a flattened nose but the eyes say it all...sad. Her hat or hair is a tiny crocheted fabric cap that is sewn on. She has a onesie slip/ pant kind of thing and an antique maroon red calico dress that she came with and it fits her really well. She is 12" tall and fits in the hand perfectly. Tiny waist and large hips and shoulders. She is a little piece of history. C.1880
