Wax-over papier mache doll, 16 inch wax over composition doll. A sweet and kindly blonde with an Alice hairstyle, her body is in good condition, as far as I can tell, with a squeaker that is no longer working. Glass pupil-less eyes and a Mona Lisa smile. The lace on her delightful faded cotton print dress matches the lace on her bloomers. The dress and underwear are sewn on the doll, no buttons. I cannot determine if they are original. She wears a pink China silk/slip petticoat that may have been added later, or the entire outfit was made for her later. The wax on her face and hair is in excellent condition with only a paint/wax chip to her nose, and a chip on her left front hair. Her boots are painted on and her left hand has a small chip. She has a little silk ribbon bracelet to match her dress bow. Earrings are replacements.
