I love this beautiful old doll! She's a stunning, slim redhead with long, graceful legs. She must be a dancer - she's wearing shoes that are worn out on the toes, leading me to imagine she slips out at night while I'm asleep to dance in the moonlight.

Her hand-embroidered face features a knowing smile, and blue eyes coyly gazing to her right. She's wearing a flattering dress in a green, orange and brown print (possibly feed sack material). I think of her as a small-town version of a boudoir doll.

25.5 inches tall, circa 1930s-40s. Hair & features are a wool or wool-blend yarn (based on damage shown, I'm guessing, by moths). Her pretty dress is safety pinned shut in the back. Don't know what her body is stuffed with, but it's quite firm & solid feeling. She has some soiling, has been loved, and has some wear & tear as shown, but I think she's in pretty good shape for a gal getting close to 80 years old!
