Very unusual faced China doll with the Jenny Lind type hairstyle. I believe she is by Kister and dates from about 1850. As you can see, her shoulderplate was damaged and rebuilt at an earlier time. When she is wearing her antique dress, it hides this well. She has an antique body.
I have glued the head on lightly - tight enough to hold but loose enough to take off if you choose to glue it on more heavily or sew it on. It has some wear in places but is so detailed. Doll is a petite 14 tall and comes with stand. I have more antique toy and doll items listed so please check out my other auctions!
