    Serene and unusual is our early cloth doll with nicely done Oil Painted features in 16” tall. Her side glance is quite different as I find her very interesting almost like the Mona Lisa with her smile. She has a very pretty face with great detail and a strawberry & cream complexion. Her lips look to be rosebud shape and her eyes are blueish. I don’t think she’s had any touching up to her face which is somewhat faded in areas, a little bit seems to have some flaking to it as well.

    Hope has been loved and has some wear to her head and arms. Her head is gusseted, has many small holes and had been patched long ago with beige tan fabric, though I would think a brown patch would’ve been almost unnoticed. Her hands and arms are very old leather, hands have fingers and wrist patches likely from the leather getting old and pulling away there. I did none of her repairs. From further notes I had done but no photos yet, her foot has repair to ankle and her arm tops as well. She sits nicely as her legs are sewn so they hinge and she has a wide butt :), she’s stuffed pretty well, not sure with what as yet.

    Her antique cotton dress is beautiful, flouncy with its ruffled hem & velvet ties at the cap sleeves and she has undergarments: under slip & her pantaloons have wonderful lacy edging. Her legs have black stocking sewn to them. Her black hat is a stunner, it’s very old with many flowers on its velvet ribbon band, which extends over the edge. A favorite of mine.
