This is a very interesting doll! She stands about 22 inches tall and has a bisque head that is not affixed to the body as you can see from one of the photos. It needs to be free in order to move properly, but it doesn’t come all the way off. There are no marks of any kind on the body or head. SHE IS ALL ORIGINAL - This means everything is original- had, body, clothes, wig, shoes etc.
She has fixed blue glass eyes, and 15 teeth – 8 upper and 7 lower. There is a small flaw on her left eyelid, but it appears to be a manufacturing flaw and not a crack. She has a lovely blond mohair wig that is a mop of soft curls.
Her body is papier mâché with a little leather thrown in, and lots of tape. Her arms are a bit worn here and there, but it doesn’t detract from her overall appearance.
Her mechanism is a little difficult to get to work, but if you hold her rather than try to put her in a doll stand, it works fine. You just wind her and push the on/off switch to the back and she moves her head, arms and legs and says “Mama” (or is it “Papa”?) She works best if she is held on the front of her body. If you would like to see her in action, please contact me for the link to her video.
She is wearing her original underclothes which consists of a chemise, bloomers, wool half-slip and cotton half-slip. Her dress is beautiful with lots of eyelet insertion and ruching. Everything is in good condition with no rips, tears, holes or stains. She also wears a satin-lined wool cape that a few moths have snacked on, but the holes are not terrible. She is also wearing lacey socks and pink boots with glass buttons.
