This is just a gorgeous old china doll with the hard to find brown glass eyes. I refer to this hair style as a "pin curl" style, but that is just my terminology for it. It happens to be a favorite hair style of mine. Her face has wonderful crisp modeling, with her little chin jutting so nicely out. Her eyebrows are made up of many strokes and beautifully painted. She does have a bit of a cheek rub on her right cheek and there are the expected hair rubs. Her body is old but I do not know if it is original to her. Her hands are lovely, but there is a tiny chip on the tip of her fingers on her left hand. This might be a manufacturing flaw. There are no chips, cracks or repairs to her head and shoulders. She wears a beautiful antique silk dress that has so many wonderful embellishments. Notice the detail at the neckline, ruffles on the end of the sleeves and that wonderful pom-pom trim both at her neck and around the hem. The silk does have many splits in it but as you can see, she still looks quite fetching in this dress. Beneath the dress are four petticoats! She also comes with her early bonnet. This doll will be a choice piece in any collection. Please feel free to request more photos or ask questions. Lay-a-way is available with this doll as with any of my items. Please take a look at my other early dolls and accessories and thank you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
