Alt Beck China head flattop doll in gorgeous velvet dress. This 17 inch vision of china loveliness, with a deep shoulderplate, is in excellent condition, on her original body. Her upper and lower legs have been replaced. This lady has the self containment that I admire so in china dolls and a gentle smile is on her lips. She seems to be looking past you, or else she's a little too demure to look you directly in the eyes. Very nicely blushed cheeks, too.
Her condition is excellent, with no cracks, hairlines or chips. Her lower arms have a couple of small glazing irregularities. She wears a beautiful velvet dress in the style of the 1870’s, made for her long ago. It is a bodice and skirt, the bodice is lined, and there is an overskirt that is pleated in the back into graceful drapes, forming a modified bustle. Made with a combination of machine and hand stitching. The fabric of the skirt is pristine and the fabric of the bodice is worn, which leads me to think of a little girl holding this doll near to her. Underneath, there is a petticoat and knickers.
Shipping charge is approximate. I will refund overcharge. Please take a moment to read my terms of sale.
