A splendid French Jules Steiner Figure A with rare lever eye mechanism, closed mouth, and hand sewn antique French dress in powder blue silk moire, with antique filigree pin. The doll is in excellent condition and the lever eye mechanism on her dark blue eyes works well. The eyes have the name Steiner on them. At 19" tall, she is cabinet size, but big enough to have great presence.
Her fabulous face has outlined closed lips, lavender eye shadow, painted lashes, feathered arched brows. accent dots in nostrils and inner eye corners, dimpled chin, blushed cheeks, smooth softly shaded bisque, free of any hairlines, chips, or damage, and pierced ears with blue earrings.
She has a lovely vintage light blonde mohair wig over a cardboard pate. The color is perfect with her eyebrows.
Her original fully jointed Steiner body has straight wrists and the little cute stubby fingers Steiner is known for.
She has lovely signed Steiner deep blue paperweight lever eyes that work well (a lever in the back of the head causes the eyes to open or close when moved. Jules Steiner invented this mechanism with a rotating cylinder in the head, instead of a weight that could damage the bisque.) Her original hand sewn blue dress is silk moire and has an antique filigree pin on a ribbon sash at her waist. The green leather boots have little heels and are worn over knee high stockings. A charming garland of vintage pink and blue silk flowers adorns her hair. She has a gorgeous presentation!
Condition: Excellent; beautiful bisque without hairlines or damage, splendid dark blue paper weight eyes with lever mechanism, (working well), finely painted facial features, sturdy original fully jointed Steiner body, and beautiful clothing.
