She was lovingly handmade, probably in the 1920s, and still dressed in her original handmade clothing calico cotton dress, white cotton pantaloons, and red & white printed cotton kerchief on her nead. She has an applied ear peeking out from under her kerchief. The nose and mouth were seperatelly formed and applied.The mouth has the original 3 white glass beads, for teeth. Her arms were made, so that they are permanently bent at the elbows. This little lady even has a sewn bust under her dress. She is hard cotton stuffed, and the legs do not bend.
Has handmade black felt shoes and white socks. Socks have original old black ribbons attatched at the tops. Doll is in good, antique condition.
Felt shoes have a few very small old moth holes. A slight rip in the dress, under the left arm. Hands have a couple of holes on the backsides, and one has a small very old repair of a small hole. She measures approximately 18 1/2 high. Just a sweet little Antique Cloth Lady, ready to be loved.
