Excellent study of a young child holding her prized China head doll. She looks into the camera clutching her doll as though she wants the photo session to end before anyone has a chance to take away her favorite toy. Her mother stands holding the young lass. Three-quarter length view of the girl shows her pretty dress, while keeping the focus on the favorite toy of many girls, even 150 years after this rare image was most likely taken. The dag still has its original seals behind the image in the case. Note: the black spot on the woman's chin appears to be on close examination a mole, not a spot on the image. It has been resealed and is secured in a half leather case.
