Antique wax over papier mache doll in polka dot dress. This 21 inch girl is for those of us who admire imperfection. She has seen better days and is still here, determined to get the love she deserves. Apparently she was stored in a place that was too warm, her hair melted onto her shoulderplate, her shoulderplate melted onto her chemise, her wax has lifting and cracks. However, all is stable now and she has more than enough going for her! This sweet and earnest young lady has sleep eyes, original body, arms and legs in excellent condition and is wearing clothing that is quite old and may be original. Wonderful boots! and and an oh so pink complexion that is due to the color her shoulderplate was painted before she was waxed. When she came to me her legs were falling off her body, and I noted that her torso seems designed for a different kind of hip joint than simply sewn on, but that's how they were originally and now her upper legs have been repaired. I also added the ribbon around her head because her hair was unruly and it seems to flatter her. Lots of photos. Offered at a great price: a survivor with much personality and character.
