Rebecca Green says...It's beautifully made and dressed - what a great find! I have no idea who might have made it, but it does remind me of articles about how to make dolls out of stockings or pantyhose (they're sometimes called 'soft sculpture' dolls).

Perhaps she was intended to represent a historical period or personage??
