I recently purchased this doll from an elderly Massachusetts women who found this doll in her attic trunk. She thinks it belonged to her parents. Her mother was Polish.

She came with her original costume and fancy hat with feathers. She is approximately 22" tall with cloth body. Most of the costume has rot and is falling apart. The dolls china head, hands and feet are made of what appears to be a softer porcelain type material. Her head is in great condition, but one hand and foot are damaged.

I'm trying to identify the doll and would like to know:
Who made it.
How old is it.
What is it's worth.

The dolls china head, hands and feet are made of what appears to be a softer porcelain type material.

Inside her head is the mark: HJ 5B

Any help answering the above would be greatly appreciated.

This doll head is known as Currier and Ives. I think it is about 1870's.
