Odd Victorian Doll

I found this doll at an odds and ends shop. I bought it because it was only $7 and I really liked the dress. I didn't have high expectations for this doll.

I don't know what kind of doll it is. I'm sure it's made in China. It's hair is glued to its head. 

I think it's porcelain. It looks like the eyelashes have been ripped out. 

There isn't anything about its origins stamped on it anywhere. 

This is the cute little bag that matches the dress and hat. 

I have to admit that I don't know anything about historical dolls or if this is one. Or exactly what era this doll represents. 

This is her hat. It's glued to her hair. 

Her pantaloons are too big. 

Then there's this thing. Yeah, I could Google it to find out what it's called but I don't feel like it. 

This is her stand. The base is made out of wood. 

Here's the hideous monstrosity without her clothes on. Note the cotton ball boobies. They're glued to her chest. It's enough to give someone nightmares. And those arms. Good Lord!

This is BFC, Ink. Yuko wearing the dress. Much better. She's so pretty. The doll stand is perfect for her, too. 

The hat looks nice on her. I had to cut it out of the other dolls hair. 

I will keep this ugly, Victorian doll for now. But I really just like the dress and hat. I almost threw the doll away today because those cotton balls glued to her chest were freaking me out. I didn't want to leave the dress on Yuko so I decided to keep the other doll for now.

  1. What an unusual doll! It's a shame about the weird body, but the outfit alone looks more expensive than what you paid. The tulle thing underneath the skirt is called a petticoat.
