Object Description
The doll has an elaborate headdress. It looks double-looped, with red and black stripes. Over the headdress, there is a netted piece of fabric that comes in at the neck and then hangs down to around her waist. The netting is white/off-white and has blue embroidery around the edges and in the middle, the embroidery is of flowers in the middle. It looks as if she is wearing an off-white long-sleeved shirt with sequin adornments on the chest and lace at the ends of the sleeves. Over that shirt is a coat of sorts. It is dark navy and has long sleeves and metallic gold, looped embroidery around the edges. Her skirt is colored blue. Over her skirt lays a netted apron. The apron netting is colored off-white and has blue embroidery around the edges. In the netting, are sewn 12, yellow and burnt orange butterfly-shaped bows. On her feet are black leather plain shoes.
It is labeled in the donor file that this is a "Doll with fancy headdress, believed to be - a typical folk costume from Kerkyra."

Kerkyra is now under the name "Corfu" and is a northwest island of Greece.
