A rare French-type belton doll, 13.5" tall, with 3 stringing holes on top of the head. She has a beautiful French style face with big bulgy dark brown stationary glass eyes, delicate dark feathered brows and lashes, a shaded closed mouth, and pierced ears with tiny golden earrings. Her bisque is lovely, pale and smooth with softly blushed cheeks and excellent modeling, no hairlines or chips. The stringing is very good. She has a swivel head and is wearing a black wig, but also comes with her vintage strawberry blonde wig.
Her 2 piece light blue silk bebe costume has rows and rows of lace with a black velvet ribbon at the waist. Underclothes are possibly original, slip and pantalets. Her shoes are black with pointed toes and little rosettes, wooden soles with heels. She has a dark blue lapis lazuli heart pendant.
Condition: Excellent. Smooth creamy bisque without hairlines or chips, excellent modeling and fine delicate painting of features, a beautiful face with stunning eyes. Her original body is jointed at elbows and knees, with straight wrists. The body is in good condition, with normal wear, chips or cracks in composition and some yellowing of the finish; it is strong and well strung. There are some rubs in the finish on her hands. Overall, a very fine French-type Belton doll with a lovely presence.
