I purchased this doll in 2008 and she was stuck in the back of my inventory for many years! Time to get her out.
Bisque head Armand Marseille, Queen Louise doll. She is approx. 23" tall. Bisque head is without damage, including hairlines. Open mouth with four upper teeth, one tooth has a slight chip on the bottom side edge. Molded and feathered eyebrows. Original blown glass blue sleep eyes with mohair lashes on the upper lids. Rare to find them so full! Eyelid wax is still present. Nice cheek blushing. She has on what I believe to be her original light brown human hair wig with curls.
Original ball jointed composition and wood body retains the original finish. It is in good condition with only slight age wear and discoloration. Doll is wearing a wonderful antique tissue silk pale blue dress with ecru net lace detail. It is so delicate! There are a few small holes, but displays quite nicely. Closure is pins. Underneath this is an antique slip and pantaloons. Antique socks and pale blue antique kid leather shoes with turqoise heels. The shoes are missing all the buttons aside from two and a few of the button openings have broken through. I wish I had some buttons to stitch on, but alas I don't. They could be a great pair of shoes!
Note: some old wig material stuck to her head in pictures.
She is all ready to display and a great example of this doll.
