Antique 19th Century Homemade Folk Art Stuffed Dog w/ Button Eyes
An amazing survivor is this early painted face doll with rosy cheeks and bright blue eyes. She has on her original dress with a dear little hand stitched pocket, an added old sweater that covers sleeves that are mostly gone. I would call this doll a Roger Bacon type. I think she would have made him smile. She is 18" tall, firmly stuffed, rolled nose and the sweetest look. She doesn't bend easily but can sit. She is a real treasure but not for everyone. Circa 1880.
