Female doll with short synthetic red hair tied up in a white head scarf. The face and hands of the doll are made from an orange colored wool felt. Underneath the clothing, the body is covered with off-white felt. She is wearing traditional peasant garb consisting of an ankle-length, long sleeved light blue dress checked with white covered at the top with a white shawl. She also wears a pink checked apron. Her white slip and pantaloons are edged in lace. She is also wearing white socks and abarkak (leather shoes with laces that go up the calf, in this case made with back thread). She is holding a black cotton umbrella with a metal handle in her left hand. Her facial features, eyebrows, eyes with pupils, and a red mouth, are hand stitched. There is a black string attached in a loop at the top of the head scarf, indicating the possibility that this was an ornament for a Christmas tree. The doll is not flexible, but has a distinct armature that holds the arms and legs in a specific pose.
