This Nun doll is a early Kestner 22 shoulder head doll that has a very turned head with a very nice leather body. Its from early 1880s. Only marks on back is a 10. She has a closed mouth and brown set eyes. The plaster pate has never been removed from top of her head. Their is no damage to head. L ook at hands they a beautiful. The religious habit was made for her by Sister Caroline of the Sisters of Mercy in 1880s. The habit has many many parts to it and I will probably butcher the names. The black habit dress goes to floor from dolls shoulders. Attached to back is a long train th at hooks up at waist. When unhooked it stretches out behind her. Their is also a attached snood that the nun would place her hair in to keep it from showing. Around her waist is a leather belt that adjusts habit to her waist. Hanging over belt is a full sized sterling rosary. On her head is a white bonnet and around neck is a white collar. Over the bonnet is a black veil. Its truly a work of art. T his doll deserves a wonderful home. Maybe even in a church display. A ny questions I have lots of info supplied by Archives Department of Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.
