Parian Lady Doll Blonde Hair Cloth Body Great Hands

Lovely 21" parian lady doll, c1860s, with molded blonde hair with very deep comb marks and curls.

The head has a very deeply formed shoulder plate and four sew holes, with an impressed "11" on the back edge. She has blue shaded irises, black lash lines, red lip lines, nostril and eye corner accents and red lips in a demure smile. The facial features are very sharply modeled and the painting is wonderful. There are no chips, cracks or repairs to the parian shoulder head, only a tiny roughness at center front plate edge as shown in the magnified close up showing the plate edges.

The body is cloth and has beautiful hands. Since the bodice of the dress has such tight sleeves, and was stitched closed on the doll, it was not possible to undress her without having to remove a lot of stitching and then sew it back up again. I have done all I can to check the body completely, and I did not find any leaks, but there may be a reinforcement that can't be seen without undressing the doll. Everything feels solid, no leaks, and the legs are jointed at hips and knees.

The gorgeous silk shantung gown is a beautiful blue/green solid underskirt with coordinating primrose print for the overdress and bodice. The sleeves are quite fitted and again, the seaming of the bodice was completed on the doll.

Excellent early blonde parian lady doll, beautifully dressed and ready for display.
