I dont know the first thing about dolls. There is no visible mark. The hands feet and legs are perfect. The eyes open and shut and there are painted eyelashes and eyebrows. The doll appears to be in the original clothing which is plaid and she is wearing Scottish theme clothing. This would either be a costume or character doll.
In the late 19th century it was a common practice to place spoons on a table in a spoon holder and as diners needed a spoon they simply helped themselves from a central source for spoons. Many glass companies made spoon holders and one of the most popular was Log Cabin. This holder is in good condition with the exception of minor chips on the edge around the top from where spoons were added and taken out. The glass is brilliant and reflects surfaces very very well. If you have an interest in early patterns of American pattern glass Log Cabin will be of interest to you.
