    I believe she is dead! Look at the stand at her feet and the odd look on her face and odd way her left hand is!

Paper mache Lady Doll with Flirty Eyes Circa 1840

Princess Victoria's doll "Gertrude, Lady Arnold" a fictitious character. This doll is illustrated in the book "Queen Victoria's Dolls" in this costume. c. 1832

Both girl and doll seem to have a pained expression... in the case of the girl, you can see why - the photographer's clamp holding her still from behind! :)

Notice how Dollie's dress is spread out so you can see the trim... somebody must have worked hard on that dress! :)
