Hello,
Your doll was made by Alfred Schoenhut. He was from Germany, but moved to the US in 1872 to start his toy factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1911, he was awarded the patent for his dolls that were called All Wood Perfection Art Dolls. She has an all wood head, wig hair, compressed metal spring joints and there should be two holes in the soles of the feet that allow the doll to be posed standing. These dolls have a value of 595-795.00 with original clothing.
