Original antique 19th century, civil war era, black cloth doll dressed in her original turkey red cotton dress. She stands about 14 tall, and she is by far the best example I have seen of a doll of her kind. She is in overall very good condition considering her age and composition, as you can see in the photos she has some staining on her dress and there are some holes in the wool layer of her body (the body has an inner layer that is cotton). Her face is hand stitched, her hair is wool yarn.
