The last birthday doll

I got word that the last recipient of a birthday doll likes antiques and collectables so I made this reproduction old doll for her. She is all cotton but her head, arms and legs are gessoed and painted. Then they are sanded, rubbed and otherwise abused to get an old look. She wears a silver love heart, an old celluloid button and an old hanky at her waist. I hope that she likes it.
