This is a lovely very early wooden doll from Germany with original clothes. She is missing her arms but it is hard to tell. She displays beautifully.
This doll is made with an old clay pipe for the face and body and stuck into a spool of black button and carpet thread. Bought probably as a gift at a Bazaar in the late 1800's. The clothes are hand made, her arms are cardboard, a bag with shoe buttons hangs off her shoulder and handwritten on her apron is this verse, My name is Miss Piper I'm not a pen-wipe But if from your shoes The buttons you lose Then just come to me and directly you'll see with what skill and delight I will sew them on tight. It is 7 1/2" tall and is C. 1890. It is in very good condition with a sigh age discoloring.
