A fabric doll representing 'Columbine'. She has a flesh coloured felt head, body, arms, hands, legs and feet, and a blonde mohair wig. She has hand stitched facial features, and a protruding stuffed nose. The fingers are individually stitched. She is wearing a faded pink and cream dress with a very full skirt with a scalloped edge. The back and the inside of the skirt is not faded. It has white chiffon sleeves, and a ruff at the neck. The bodice has four metal rings on it and there are more near the hem of the skirt. Underneath she is wearing drawers. On her feet are dark brown suede shoes with criss-cross straps tying around the ankle. There is evidence of moth holes in her lower legs. A paper label with the number '14' on it is sewn onto the back of her left lower leg.
Loaned to the Museum of Childhood by the Betty Cadbury Trust Sudbury in January 1994.
