This doll is spectacular - she is 35" tall and her bisque head is free from any hairlines or restoration. She has wonderful pale bisque with bulging blue paperweight glass eyes. Her kid body is nice and clean and sturdy. She has a few patches but is in overall excellent condition. She has her original cork pate and human hair wig with a bun in the back. It is rare to find all original undergarments which include her original silk stockings!! Her shoes are white leather with beautiful embroidery (newer). She is in a fabulous original crushed blue velvet antique jacket with blue silk panel in the front. Her skirt is in amazing condition and is original as well - blue and cream striped silk. Her antique hat is a work of art in itself: wonderful antique lace with silk trim and lavish bow in back. She has pretty little blue earrings as well. She has a swivel head and pierced ears. She is marked 12 on the head and is estimated to be made in 1865. Her maker is unknown - could be Gaultier or Barrois. The jacket is sewn in several places onto the doll so I didn't want to remove the stitches. I am sure she is in excellent condition underneath base upon an examination of the rest of her body. This wonderful doll can be yours with only $400 down provided the remainder is paid in 12 monthly installments or less.
