A large rag doll made from heavy-duty cotton stuffed with an unknown substance, possibly some kind of fabric. The doll is jointed by means of rows of stitching at the shoulders and tops of the legs. Her facial features, hair, underwear and boots are printed on. The 'underwear' consists of rows of 'broderie anglaise' around the tops of the arms, knees and across the chest. She also has red 'stockings' and black 'boots'. She has been darned and mended in many places, including the neck and both arms, and is very dirty.
Donated to the Museum of Childhood by Mrs M. Foreman in December 1974.
