Late 1800's Doll

I have a doll that was my great grandmother's so the best I can assume is that she is from the late 1800's.


I have no information on her whatsoever and would like to find out anything I can.

Her face is starting to crack and I know it isn't porcelain and her hair is starting to deteriorate.

Her legs may be porcelain and the joints are cloth but I'm not sure. She is also starting to get brown age spots on her dress.

I've searched the internet but can find nothing at all similar to her. Can anyone tell me anything about her?

Thanks, Deb

She's 16" tall. I originally had a larger picture but this program wouldn't let me send it, it said the picture was too large so I had to keep shrinking it down to that size to fit.

There are no markings that I can see, nothing on the neck. Her hair is in a bun and hairnet but where the hair is starting to deteriorate on the side I am afraid to touch it too much.

Also, the dress and blue petticoat are sewn on and she has white knickers also sewn on so I can't see under them. Only the arms and legs look like porcelain or some material like that, the face feels like plaster but I'm not sure.

The rest of the body is cloth and the arms are sewn to the dress. I know this isn't much help but this program won't let me attach photos so I don't know what else to do.

Late 1800's Doll?
by: Diane

Sorry, picture is way too small to see enough of the doll. A larger nude picture and a facial picture would hep. Any markings on the neck or back of the doll? How tall is the doll?
