This is my Scarlet Woman. She's an astounding 28' tall Antique (circa 1880) parian in lovely condition. Her shoulder head is just over 7" tall . Her parian china is in fantastic condition, no damage whatsoever. Her deep red satin all lined 2 piece outfit is a wonder, expertly sewn in both machine and hand sewing. all lined with hand basting and trimmed in the most delicate lace with tiny mop buttons. It has all tiny hook and eye closures . She wears an assortment of antique unders including lace trimmed bloomers, a nice pleated lace trimmed petticoat and a Wonderful long slip constructed with layers and layers of insertion lace !! Her cloth body is in fine shape with a nice thin waist and firm stuffing. She has the most beautifully molded china hands with delicate vermilion outlines!
She wears a gorgeous antique necklace (mid to late 19th century) of deep red glass beads and metal caps that is tied on (no clasp) . She still retains her original scarlet sewn on boots on her original hair stuffed legs, but the boots are in bad repair (see pic) so I bought her a nice pair of early leather Fashion Boots with wonderful shoe buttons that will fit over them. And then there is her antique (1880s 90s) parasol! A gorgeous bent wood handle with bone cap. The scarlet satin cover is shredding, but still lovely and it has the most amazing hand sewn trim decoration. She has an astounding presence, one of the most striking dolls I've ever owned.
