This 22 inch (size 8) French Lanternier 'Favourite' doll has a wonderful characterful face. She is a head turning, kiss blowing, straight legged walking doll with a very lively, happy expression.. She has been restrung without the kiss blowing string. Her face has a wonderful, first out of the mold definition with dark multi stroked feathered brows, lavishly painted upper and lower lashes, blue paperweight eyes, accented nostrils and eye corners, dark rose painted shiny lips with four teeth showing and a dimpled chin. The bisque head is without hairline, crack or restoration and her body is in good condition. Her head moves from side to side in a jaunty manner when she walks. She wears a lovely antique red spotted dress with black trim. This dress has some moth damage and a repair but there is so much pleated fabric it does not distract from its beauty. Her wig is a mohair replacement with a lovely soft ribbon tie. She is wearing oilcloth shoes with ribbon decoration and small heels with the number eight stamped on the sole.
