1770-1785 Doll made in England of wood with a gessoed head, neck, and chest, and a linen dress. At this date there was little or no attempt to create lifelike representation in dolls. Details such as the age, occupation, status or even gender of the doll would be suggested by its clothing. This doll has the standard baluster-shaped body with a flattened back favored by English dollmakers of the period, flat wooden arms, and wedge-shaped feet.

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.
