Beautiful blonde tinted bisque doll, 18 inches of sweet loveliness. This young lady must have been one of the first out of the mold; her modeling is so crisp and her hair shows its comb marks with precision. Painted blue eyes with highlights, softly brushed cheeks, wonderfully shaped lips and coloring. Her gusseted kid body shows age with only a few patches- better condition than most of this type of body. Lower arms are bisque with well formed and detailed hands, short pinkie fingers. Lower legs are cloth, not removing her socks because they will stretch out. Head shows no chips, hairlines or cracks, and only the slightest rubs to the back of head.
She wears a beautiful antique white cotton cutwork dress, with embroidered trim at waist and silk ribbon gathering the sleeves. I cannot tell if her dress is original. Layers of antique underclothing, none is original to her. She wears knickers, a petticoat and a chemise. Her boots are a wonderful pink leather, not original but perfectly suited to her outfit. I believe this is a Kling. There are no marks visible.
