A fabric 'topsy-turvy' doll (a doll with two heads, one at each end, which can switch character). Both dolls are made from stuffed fabric and have printed faces. One part of the doll is dark skinned and dressed in a bright pink/red dress with lace decoration on the sleeves and collar. She wears a white pinafore style apron and has a head scarf tied around her head in the same fabric as the dress. She has one gold hooped earring, the other is missing. The fabric on the back of the neck has a small hole and brown staining and there are four brown dot stains on the apron. The second part of the doll is light skinned and wears a blue and white checked dress with lace style patterning at the sleeves and collar and a white apron with lace type decoration down each side. She also wears a white 'maids' cap with lace around the edge.
