Today's doll is another from Morphy's Auction. This one is called "American Lady With Something To Wear" and is dated 1857. The description reads: "Hand colored from wood engravings, this set has five lovely, detailed gowns, one shawl and four headdresses. Only the front of the envelope remains. The set is in wonderful condition with the average age and wear." It is estimated to fetch $300-$400!
There wasn't an image with better resolution, unfortunately. But It's a very nice-looking doll overall, and the outfits are nicely colored. I especially like the one presented on the doll itself below with the red ribbons.
