First of all, I want to thank this website for providing so much info to educate myself on these type of dolls! Yet, I still can't identify this doll.
Family story is that she belonged to great-grandma (born ~1895 to 1900).
Without opening the dress stitches on the back, I can't find any markings. She's in very good condition, to me :-), save for the chipped left shoe sole. Her hands are more detailed than others I found online. I'm guessing she has the Dolly Madison hairstyle. Her dress and pantaloons are stiffish and the jewelry is very interesting ("diamond" pin at waist and "diamond" necklace). The one thing about her, that doesn't look like other similar doll heads found online, is her mouth--red painted heart rather than painted lips.
Can anyone give me more info from looking at the pics? or can you direct me to where I can get answers?
thanks in advance!
