This nice 15" black doll is very nice. She has the most intricate face with very nice sewing. She does have some melting of the top layer, I have a close up picture that is actually much closer that your eye would see in person. It is like she is under a magnifying glass. So she doesn't look that bad when she is just sitting in the room. She has on perfectly fitting clothes that are antique and I have to think they are original. Although someone in the last 20 years or so wrapped fabric around her chest with padding to fill out the top of the two piece doll dress. She also has on a wool petticoat and white pantaloons and black socks and great little leather shoes. Under her kerchief is black astrakhan hair. She is just a lovely early black doll. Circa 1880 and 15" tall.
