Wow!! This girl has the look! It's time to get a bigger cabinet!!!! An extraordinary antique body with kid leather arms, individually sewn fingers, in Great shape! one arm has come slightly un-stitched but no rips or breaks! They don't leak and they look great so I've just left them alone! The tops of her leather arms have been covered in cloth maybe an inch..nicely done! Lovingly done even. I like when a little repair is done with some delicacy. It's so rare to find a body this age in this good condition! She wears a Gorgeous, all hand sewn Paisley dress, an older dress, possibly Antique, certainly vintage. Amazing sewing and just a wonderful Paisley calico print! It has some fading, but no damage, it's a great fit and so well made! She has layers of antique unders and lace stockings! A cute pair of white antique shoes. I gave this girl her wonderful antique hat and cape, Her black felt hat trimmed with lace and silk and paper flowers and her black cotton cape trimmed with dark brown velvet are antique and Perfect for her! She's such a gorgeous girl! This is my favorite Kling doll mold ever, I've owned several versions of her but this girl is the Queen of them all! Her shoulder head is in fine shape, wonderful painting! Wide open and youthful expression and those lovely vermilion lips! She has a few, minor paint rubs in her black hair, all pretty typical for a china of this age.. nothing distracting. Of course there are no chips, cracks etc.
Some of my china doll collectors tell me they try to keep their collection in Cabinet Size dolls… My response is "You need to get a bigger Cabinet!!" :-) these larger chinas are so enchanting! I have 4 larger chinas to list this month, and they are so impressive, they just make my head swim! The proportions are so life like, the details in their costuming really come through. I keep my own larger chinas on a corner bureau with a wonderful floral still life hanging above it and friends are so drawn to them! They walk right by the smaller dolls to go marvel at the big chinas!
This is just a lovely girl!
