Wonderful French Fashion lady Poupee doll. Marked "0" on the back of her head and F.G. on her shoulder. The doll stands 12 in. tall without the hat. I have not stripped this doll because I know I would never get it back together properly, but I know the body is in very good condition. Perfect pale bisque swivel head on a perfect bisque shoulder plate. Original cork pate with her original short curly wig(I think the wig is original). Wig is nailed to the cork pate. Beautiful early painted eyebrows and eyelashes. Blue paperweight stationary eyes, closed mouth, pierced ears, original kid body, kid arms with wired fingers (some missing on one hand). Firms sturdy body in very nice condition. The costume is factory original made of crimson red and gold silk. Stiff cardboard hat covered in crimson and gold silk with metallic trim and its original pom-pom at the top. The costume has metallic trims and laces with original pom-poms down the front. There is old cotton padding under the costume. Tied to the wrist of one hand is a cluster of brass bells. Tied to the other hand is her original cane. No shoes, just fabric tied at the ankle decorated with a crimson red silk covered button. This doll is as I purchased her many years ago. I am uncertain as to why there would be glue residue on the hat. Replaced earrings. Please read condition below and look at all of the photos as they are part of the description.
CONDITION: No hairlines to her bisque head. No eye flakes or flakes around her pierced ears. Her wig is short and sparse. Her body is sturdy and very nice. One hand has missing fingers and a tape repair. The fingers on the other hand are present but has a tape repair and some leather splits around the fingers, both shown in the above photos. Clothing and hat have areas of melting and there is glue residue around the inside edge of the hat. Lace trims around the bottom legs have tears. No odor and from a smoke-free environment. While I make every effort to describe my items to the best of my ability I encourage you to look at all of the photos so that you can form your own opinion of condition.
