Details include an all wood articulated body (some flaking), shoulderplate and head – which are one. The facial details are quite pleasing, and the hairstyle is classic. Included in her regional dress is an under-slip of the most wonderful blue and white floral-printed cotton, a striped silk skirt and an embroidered and cutwork apron.
