I love this mold number and this big girl represents a fine example. She measures about 30" tall. Her socket head is beautifully painted with molded, multi-stroke eye brows and lovely blue glass sleep eyes. The wax is perfect. Her color is that pale creamy complexion you want to see. Her only flaw is a shallow flake (wig pull) at the back of her head. high near the crown. The wig covers it completely. She has no other hair lines, or chips. Her body is wonderful and with very little wear. Her shoulder joints have the loose ball and socket. The finish is original and the paint on the finger nails is intact. I am sure the toes are too, but I was afraid to remove the original Heinrich Handwerck shoes. The body isn't stamped.
She is dressed in a red silk dress with hook an eye closures. It has a little lace collar that is pinned on with antique bar pins. She also sports an antique lacy slip and bloomers with hook and eye closures. I added the antique sleeveless child's dress with lace panels because it fit her so nicely. The middle panel is a bit thin where the lace is. The clothing could need a launder and they haven't been ironed. She is wearing her antique shoes and stockings. Both are in nice shape.
I know, now that we have to charge taxes, our buyers will have to pay a bit more, so I am trying very hard to keep my prices down. I thank all my buyers for shopping with me. Shipping on this item is a bit high even when I'm halving the amount. The package is huge (I've already packed it for a shipping estimate) and I dare not send it without the 10.00 spec. handling. I apologize to my out of country buyers. I will only ship to the U.S. for this doll as she is so big.
