A rolled homespun linen doll wearing an indigo blue calico dress is quite outstanding. She is 11" tall and is a stump doll, never had legs. She has a simple pencil face with wear right at her nose and to the left of her right eye. She is all hand sewn. Her dress is treadle machine sewn and is probably not original but is a wonderful period dress and the same era as she is. The neck of the dress may have had a collar as there is unfinished edge at her neck. She has nicely rolled simple arms. She is just the right size to be held in one hand. She is a special find.
