Very pleased to offer This gorgeous lady, made in France between 1860- 1880 by Francois Gaultier. She has a perfect bisque swivel head on her perfect bisque shoulder plate. She is marked with a 5 on her head. Of particular note is the outstanding artistry that went into creating such a Face with softly alluring qualities. She has the purist creamy bisque, with slightly perky nose, soft blush, delicate chin and lips. Her cornflower blue glass eyes, have a remarkable depth to them that does not show in the photos. Her body is of creamy white kid, with the mitten hands typical to Gaultiers earliest models.her body is very sturdy, with moderate wear to her hands. She Is dressed in her original blue walking suit, with pleats, and beribboned embellishments.her suit sadly has more than average melting and splits. It is however intact , and still whispers of grandness.Please view photos carefully. Under her dress is 3 layers of petticoats and undies. All of these are in excellent condition, having never been removed from underneath her walking suit.her shoes are marked with a 4 on the bottom, and have much wear. The only item not original to her is her wig, which is a newer, French, replacement.she has her original cork pate. I have added her hat ( newer) and her vintage market basket, these will be included also. I'm always happy to provide more information upon request. Non smoking home. Thanks
