Object Name Doll
Description A soft bodied doll with a molded face, feet and bottom, wearing an ethnic dress. Doll is wearing a yellow floral bonnet with two trims: a sheer light blue one along the hem around the face and a longer ivory lace trim behind the first trim. The bonnet is tied together with a satin light purple string and has two, small, black and gold threaded loops on the sides of the bonnet where her ears would be. Her left loop has a small bouquet of red and yellow flowers hanging from it. Her hair is a short and auburn. Her face is painted with blue eyes, small eyebrows, long eyelashes, rosy cheeks, and red lips. She is wearing a bra made of tied together material that is stuffed to give her breasts. Her arms have no hands and are very simple compared to the rest of the doll's features. She is wearing a dress that is a aqua floral pattern on the top, which has short poofy sleeves and buttons in the back. Attached there is a two layered skirt. The underlayer is a thick royal blue material while the top layer is a sheer white with a royal blue trim along the bottom hem. Around her waist is a green satin sash with a floral print. Her feet and bottom are sewn to look like both. Around her shoulder is a wide pink and floral scarf with an ivory lace trim on one side.
