Antique Large Sophia Smith China Head Doll with long molded curls has restored shoulder plate. She is such a rare head that she may be forgiven this factor. Her actual head and face and hair are perfectly lovely, with no repair or repaint. I do not know the extent of repair or restoration of her shoulderplate that is seamlessly attached to her head, just as it should be.
Approximately 24 1/2” tall. Such beautiful sculpting of her face, with wonderful definition of her facial planes, gorgeous feature painting, Molded upper and lower eyelids,
red lines accent The upper eyelids and her eye corners have circular dots, her nostrils long pen ovals, and there is separation of her upper and lower lips. Her hair is sharply defined and hangs in an even dozen of corkscrew curls, just away from her shoulders. Her hea, face and hair have no repaint or repair and no restoration, but the shoulder plate does.
Her body is antique and is all cloth with stump arms.
Her clothing is all antique in layers of antique underclothing and an antique tan woolen dress with hand sewn soutache braid trim ...all hand sewn and befitting this rare and beautiful doll. It closes at the back with antique brass hooks and eyes. Her dress does have some nibbles and moth holes here and there but it doesn’t take away from the wonderful effect of the costume, and the high neck covers har shoulder plate but not her gorgeous coveted long curl molded hairdo.
She would be a wonderful edition to a collection of rare antique china head dolls.
