A stunning 31 inch Wax over Papier Mache doll dating to 1850-60's . This is a stunning example with superb original clothing. She has a typical body with in-turned feet. Her head is in good condition for one of these types of doll. These dolls are often known as slit heads. Her original mohair wig is inserted into a slit on the top of her head.
There are a couple of fine cracks in the wax which is amazing for this type of doll. Under her amazing dress she has layers of underclothing. I have dot removed the dress as I do not want to risk damaging the box at the back.
