Antique 10 1/2 German china head rare Lydia Head covered wagon original body
This is a very rare original china head doll. She is called a “Lydia Head” (1840’s) because of the hair style of a center part, smooth sides and sausage curls. These dolls are also called cover wagon (1850’s) but that hair style was somewhat shorter in the back. The Lydia style is older than the covered wagon, the doll is now around 180 years old! This rare doll is on her original hand made cloth body. It is stuffed with cotton type material and has a few old patches. I have fitted the upper torso with a cotton twill cover so that the head could be attached to that and not the original fragile body. The head is well mounted. The right shoulder plate has been repaired but the head is undamaged with only a few paint rubs. She has a pink tint complexion and is unmarked. The doll is dressed in the style of a colonial woman or one who would have traveled on a wagon train. These women wore sturdy fabrics in dark colors that didn’t show dirt. This doll wears a flannel full slip, warm stockings, a brown printed cotton dress and a black apron. She has no shoes, her feet are an odd shape and the wrong fitting shoes could damage her delicate feet. This is a rare incredible find. The doll stand is not included.
