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.
