A plastic costume doll with jointed hips and shoulders. She has painted facial features with moving blue eyes. Her long blonde hair, styled in two plaits, is covered by a black satin bonnet edged with black lace and a band of ribbon embroidered with blue flowers and red stitching. This has a red ribbon bow at the back and fastens with a large red ribbon bow under her chin. Her black satin bodice has long sleeves edged with lace. Over this is a black satin shawl edged in red ribbon with scalloped fringing. Her plain black heavy gathered long skirt has a long pleated red apron over it. This is edged with black lace and has two strips of green and red embroidered ribbon hanging loosely down the centre of the front. The apron fastens at the back with red cotton straps and a metal stud. Beneath the dress she wears a white lace edged cotton petticoat and black cotton knickers. Her feet are bare.
