Papier Mache With A Great Body

I might not have a beautiful head but I have a great body. This lady is 22” tall. She is a wax over papier mache but her shoulder head was re-waxed years ago. It would be a project to make her beautiful again but she does have very nice blue papier weight eyes (pictured) and great forearms and lower legs. These have not been repaired, repainted or waxed. Her cloth body is straw stuffed. Her forearms are shapely and stocky. They are in very good condition with all fingers intact. There is a rub on the end of one finger on the left hand. The lower legs are very chubby and heavy. The shoes are very unusual. They have a T-strap with three cross straps. The shoes have heels. The left leg has a clean crack on the surface (pictured) but it does not appear to go through and no pieces are missing. The surface crack is also at the seam on the back of the shoe (pictured). While the head needs some attention , the forearms and especially the lower legs are charming.
