Papier Mache Doll with Glass Eyes – 14”tall

This papier mache doll is wearing her original outfit. The brown skirt is like a chintz which appears shiny without any tears or holes. She has a blouse in a medium brown with dark brown polka-dots.  Another top is in a dark brown with cream colored stripes, her hat and her baskets are made of straw and trimmed in fabric. It shows wear as it should, but is all intact. She has a beautiful face with nicely molded facial features. Her hair is short and sculptured in curls with exposed ears.  She has a cloth body with leather feet, arms and glove like hands. She is wearing an old muslin apron and petticoat. She is from my collection.
