22 1/2′ ( 56 cm ) glazed porcelain shoulder head circa 1860 with good quality slightly pink complexion with rosier cheeks, blue painted eyes, separately molded upper eyelids with black eyeliner and pink blushing. She has black painted hair with well sculpted three-dimensional hair with center part, six curls framing the face and pulled back fully covering the ears  with nine vertical curls in back stopping just at the neckline. She is on an antique stuffed muslin body with sewn joints at hips and knees, with well- made long white leather arms with individually stitched fingers. The arms are somewhat old but unlikely as old as the head or the rest of the body. Although she lacks shoes, she wears a very nice pink and white cotton print ” off- the- shoulder ” dress with a separate antique  pink cotton shawl with finely embroidered edging. A lovely doll in her own right but also an appropriate decorative object in an antique setting, especially if she were to be positioned in an old chair of her own!………………US$ 295.
