Female doll with short brown synthetic hair. 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. The doll is dressed in peasant garb. She is wearing an off-white cotton scarf on her head, a long sleeved, knee-length navy blue cotton dress with white polka dots and an aqua cotton shawl with white stitching. She is holding a light blue umbrella made from cotton fabric in her left hand. Black string is wrapped around the lower third of the cloth part of the umbrella. The handle of the umbrella is metal wrapped in black satin ribbon. She has a white cotton slip and pantaloons edged in lace. Her legs are covered with white felt socks and she has brown abarkak (leather shoes) with red string laces. Her facial features, eyebrows, eyes with pupils, and a red mouth, are hand stitched. Her cheeks are painted pink. There is a red and gold string attached 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.
