This nice size folky faced cloth doll comes with a card attached with her history. She is an Ohio doll with original blue calico dress and jacket. I love her big round pencil drawn eyes and her straight line mouth. She has really nice hands with fingers and thumbs. She is cotton stuffed that is dense but not really firm. She has sewn on pants that I think are original as they match her body. She has a hand written tag pinned to her that reads, "Great folky rag doll Origin Ohio late 19th C. 23" long, body stuffed with rags, jointed at the hips and shoulders and wrists. Her hands are very folky with individual fingers and thumbs. Her pantaloons are sewn onto her body. Her black cotton ribbed stockings are also sewn on. She is wearing her original dress-A fabulous Blue and White Calico sleeveless dress and jacket with white trim on both." So I don't agree with the tag I think the stuffing is cotton but either way she is nice and old and original and the dress is great, does have some fading. She is 23" tall and is circa 1880-90
