Small bisque-headed doll (28cm/11") marked only "15/0" on the back of her neck. She has fixed brown glass eyes, a very fine antique curly mohair wig, china lower arms and a leather body with black cloth lower legs. Her bisque face is a little rough but very pretty, her leather body is jointed only at the shoulders and knees so she cannot sit. Her cloth toes were completely worn away and leaking sawdust, so she has been given new black cotton feet and legs, handsewn on over the original material and the feet stuffed with organic cotton wadding. She is dressed in new clothes (stockings, drawers, chemise, dress) made from old, vintage and antique cotton. She came wearing her necklace of pearl-effect glass beads. The paper shoes are vintage or antique from old stock.
