A rare, antique 19th Black Papier Mache Jack-in-the-Box Doll still in her original paterned cotton dress with bows and trim along with the original bonnet.

A substantial piece, It measures 23 inch high (58 cms). The face and hands are of papier mache painted black with pink detail to the mouth and the nostrils, along with the white, brown and dabs of yellow to the eyes.

The head is attached with stitching to a cotton-covered coiled spring. So she was obviously meant to pop out of a box when the lid opened. She folds down easily to just her head depth.

This ethnic version is certainly a collectable in its own right. Its sister piece - a white baby doll will appear on the site soon.
