doll head

Collectors often call the hairstyle on this doll "covered wagon," referring to the simple hairdos of girls and young women pictured in women's magazines and daguerreotypes of the middle 19th century when many American families headed West in wagon trains. The covered wagon style is characterized by a high center part on the forehead from which hair flows smoothly over the ears and settles in rows of finger or corkscrew curls that cover the back of the head. This particular doll head is unusual because its head is turned slightly toward its left side.
