This marvelous antique original presentation box is covered with blue patterned paper. On top of the lid is a very sweet image of a girl with her doll edged with gold Dresden paper. The box houses in the middle compartment a sweet 5,5”(14cm) mignonette doll. She has fixed glass eyes and no repairs, cracks or hairlines and is dressed in her knitted camisole and her crocheted underpants. The underpants match the crocheted dress she is wearing and the bonnet on the lid, all embellished with salmon silk ribbon. She wears her padded sweet wool muff with wonderful flowered edging. At the left of the doll is a compartment with a creamy silk and pink one-piece costume with pink silk covered tiny buttons. At the right of the doll is a compartment with a white muslin fine pleated dress with lace, blue bows and an exceptional sash. At the inside of the lid are two dresses, one coat, the crocheted bonnet, a fine straw hat and a turquoise hat.
