This lovely papier-mâché doll is 12" tall, she dates from the 1840's and she comes in entirely original condition.
Her papier-mâché shoulder head is in very good condition. She has a nice and unusual hair style, she has wooden lower arms and lower legs. Her leather body feels strong and sturdy although we have not removed all underclothes.
Her original 1840@s outfit is absolutely exquisite along with her straw bonnet. She retains all of her original underwear, which includes a pink wool petticoat. This we love particular as in its life it has been so carefully darned and repaired and finally made into an underskirt for a precious doll, just showing how valuable items were of that time. This is a charming piece of her history.
