Description from user:

I don't have much info on this doll at all, however I do know it was professionally restored with a new body likely around 30-40 years ago. Just with my own research I think it is a French fashion doll but I am not positive. restored by: Linda Greenfield Chili Doll Hospital 4332 Buffalo Road North Chili, N.Y. 14515 it is around 23 inches tall and 7 inches across the chest. there are some small stains on the arms of the dress but no stains on the doll itself. included in the outfit are socks, shoes (one is missing a flower), pants, skirt, dress, bow, bonnet

This is a doll from my grandmother.
