Rare Early Antique Doll 1800s Victorian 28" W/period Outfit Composition & Cloth:
beautiful early doll from the late 1800s. I dont know enough about antique dolls to tell you who made it but I know enough to know it is quite early. The eyes are glass and it appears to have a composition head and shoulders with stuffed cloth body. Forearms, hands, calves and feet appear to be a composition material as well.
Condition is as shown with damage to one leg and fingers. There are stains and needs a good cleaning. It is NOT musty smelling and looks well cared for despite its appearance. The outfit includes a dress, two petticoats and a glass or metal necklace.
No attempt was made to repair anything. It is in as found condition with no touchups. I do not know where the hair is byt may actually have it as I go through some bozes, I may find it. (no guarantees and not trying to build up false hope, but if I findit, I will include it).
There is a large number 4 on the scalp toward back (victorian scripted style).
Contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you.
