Premier Belton 13" tall doll has a solid dome bisque shoulder head with one center hole and two side holes. Lovely feathered eyebrows with upper & lower painted lashes. Beautiful closed, pouty mouth with well defined dimpled chin. She has pierced ears. Very pale complexion and flushed cheeks compliment her hair and dress couleurs.
She has piercing, stationary spiral threaded, paperweight glass blue eyes. You'll love this petite poupée!
Her head has no hairlines, cracks or repairs. The only defect is the back of her right ear has a small flake that of course is undetectable under the wig and only upon close inspection.
Kid body with bisque hands, left knee joint has a small tear and some sewing repair. Her head has been professionally restrung and she has a thin strip of moleskin (very common thin band to cushion head used by doll hospitals) inside neckline. Again, undetectable but does provide good stability and protection for precious head! Otherwise, body in better than good condition.
MARKING on HEAD:
(bottom nape of neck)
Antique clothing came with doll made of Chantilly & Venetian lace. Back closure has three (3) clear rhinestone faceted and set with prongs buttons. Her dress is in excellent condition; I didn't detect any holes or alterations on the lace. Her underskirt is form fitted silk taffeta with buckram on hemline for stability; original to the outfit. There are a few minimal small breaks on the silk fabric on underskirt. Her chapeau is original to her outfit and also in good condition. Her undergarments are vintage and are in good condition, except for a few stains that could probably be washed out with ivory soap and cold water. Stockings are original.
Human hair; probably replaced and styled nicely.
Sweet vintage leather black shoes fit her well.
Replaced faux pearl doll drop earrings.
