I found this doll at an estate sale and have not been able to find anything out about it. Research tells me that Sankyo makes music boxes for dolls but this is a non musical doll. Her clothes are beautiful, she has a cotton frock trimmed with coffee coloured lace, brown velvet sleeves edged in more coffee lace and velvet, skirt is finished off with beautiful velvet trimming. Front of dress has threads of brown ribbon which is threaded through pink eyelet style embroidery running vertically to hem and a small cameo brooch just below neckline, beautiful bonnet with flowers and possibly cherries or some type of fruit as shown and back has zipper opening , she has a cotton petticoat trimmed with coffee lace, bloomers trimmed with coffee lace and gorgeous long leather brown horse riding style boots. Her head, hands, calf's/feet are porcelain.

Can anyone add some insight on this doll?

Thanks for any feedback.
