12” Blond China Lady ~ Unusual Hairdo with Red Bow

This is a petite blond china lady attributed to Conta and Boehme. She has a perfect china head with an unusual fancy hairstyle. Her antique body has china limbs, and she may be wearing her all original clothing. Her previous owner referred to her as Susie Blue. Here are the details:

Head: Her glazed porcelain shoulderhead is perfect with no cracks, chips, hairlines, or repairs. Her unique hairstyle has short curls in front and wide rolls on the sides. The hair on top is pulled back, to be held in place with a molded red bow, before cascading into corkscrew curls. She has fully exposed ears. Factory imperfections: firing lines along the mold line in her hair and some light speckling. Signs of wear: a little nose rub, and typical wear on the back of her head and her red bow. Her painting is typical of Conta and Boehme, and an unglazed partial head with the same hairstyle was found on the site of their porcelain factory.

Body: Her antique cloth body is hard stuffed and has very wide hips. The cloth portion of her arms have been replaced. She has slender porcelain arms with spoon-shaped hands, and her legs have flat-soled blue boots. Arms and legs are perfect.

Clothes: She is wearing her all original clothing. Her two piece suit has considerable wear to the silk portions, but I find it very charming and I would not change it. Underneath, she wears her original half-slip and bloomers. Her unders are in excellent aged condition. All of her clothing was originally sewn in place, and now closes with pins. Everything fits perfectly.

International buyers: Shipping and insurance options will vary by country of destination. Please contact me for shipping quotes. Full value will be declared on the customs form.
