Lovely English Wax Over

This is such a sweet faced doll.
She is an English wax over composition, sometimes called a slit head because of the way the hair is inserted into a slit in the top of the head.
She really has such a soulful face, as often these dolls do.
She dates from around 1840/50s.
Lovely complexion and really her face is in great condition.
These dolls do not often survive without cracking but this lovely girl has virtually no cracks.
She has her original hair and her original cloth body.
Her lower arms are leather, one arm has a repair as you can see in the pics.
She wears a lovely antique dress with an antiques silk padded cape and a lovely antique bonnet.
She is a lovely doll in pretty much original condition, please be aware that there are signs of age.
