Original Civil War Period Parian Head Doll with Original Clothing and Shoes
Original Civil War Period Parian Head Doll with Original Clothing and Shoes – This doll is a rare example of a Civil War period doll that apparently could be dressed up as either a boy or a girl. The doll currently wears female, hand made clothing and undergarments; she retains her original leather hands and red leather, lace-up shoes. The doll is approximately 14” to 15” in height; it has a cloth body, with a glazed and molded collar; the head exhibits a center hair part, deeply molded hair and blue eyes. Overall, the doll is in good condition; we did have a doll restoration expert, repair a distinct crack in the side of the head and neck. The cheeks of the doll are brightly rouged and the ears are exposed. This is a great Civil War period doll, still retaining its original clothes.
