It is rare to find a french Lantenier that has her original costuming. This fantastic doll is 25" tall. Her bisque head is marked Depose Fabrication Francaise - Favorite No. 10 - Ed Tasson. Her bisque head is free from any hairlines, cracks or restoration. She has her original blue sleep glass eyes, and has blushed cheeks with a wonderful mouth that appears laughing in delight. She has a few very tiny rubs but nothing that distracting. She has an incredible curly wig that I'm sure is original to her. Her elegant gown is also original. It is peach and cream and has pantaloons, slip, bodice, dress and evening jacket along with matching slippers. I'm afraid to remove the slippers as I don't want to damage them and have difficulty putting them back on her. She has her original earrings and an antique coral beaded necklace. She is just a wonderful doll! Her body has been restrung and is composition and ball jointed. The doll seems to have replaced upper legs based upon the different paint color. I bought her this way from Theriaults years ago. I will accept layaway with $250 down provided the remainder is paid in 6 monthly payments or less. Don't miss out on this wonderful piece!
