She is from 1910, and I just love her little porcelain face. The rest of her body is a composition material. I can't imagine little children playing with this. The eyes are glass, open and close, and are expensive to fix, should they fall back in her head. This happened earlier this year, when the carriage I had her sitting in, toppled over. They have to soak off the wig to get inside the head, and reattach them. According to some articles I have read on the internet, these dolls were only owned by richer families, and only played with on Sunday's with the mother present.
thanks for stopping by for a visit, and please visit the other participants to see their vintage things too.
