An Old Wooden Queen Ann Doll

Obviously this one has had a life well lived!

She looks to me like a great make do restoration from early 19th century on an 18th century doll?  See how she is dressed, that is not period QA. Then looking closer, the wooden head and torso piece with the gesso and paint all worn off are her early part, and the cloth arms and legs are added to replace lost jointed wooden arms and legs.  I think she is dear!  What is your read on her?  

She sold for $1611.00 on  Ebay
