This is a nice antique cloth doll with a sweet embroidered face. She has blue eyes with eyelashes all the way around and pink floss mouth. It is a surprise that her face does not show any anger or humiliation from the extreme hairdo. I can just see the little girl with her mother's pointy scissors clipping all her hair with great satisfaction. She was a blond and there is a small fringe that frames her face and then rows of stitches on the back of her head that at one time was securing yarn hair. She is all hand sewn and has been carefully made with thumbs and stitch defined fingers. She is firmly stuffed and is nicely jointed so she sits and moves easily. She is wearing an antique rosebud print dress, pantaloons and apron. She is 21" tall and is circa 1890
