    This is a cloth doll with blonde hair. The head is made of a cheese cloth type material and has painted features including blue eyes under black eyebrows and red lips. The long slender body is made of purple sateen as are the long arms and legs. This is called an 'art doll' which is similar to the American boudoir, bed, or pillow dolls.

They have the thin, elongated look of the flapper style of the time.
