This is a sweet English poured wax doll from England at the end of the Nineteenth century. The stamp on her torso is barely visible, but it is Lucy Peck's stamp. It is more unusual for a poured wax doll to have sleep eyes. Her blue glass eyes operate by a wire that protrudes from her torso. Her wax head an limbs are all of matching more yellow (not pinkish) tones and are attached to the cloth body with brass grommets. She has blond individually inset hair. I believe the clothing to be original and consists of lace pantaloons, a very long cotton baby gown with lace trim, a long baby cape and matching bonnet that has rows of gathered fine wool fabric. The gown is in good condition with just a bit of foxing on parts of the fabric. There are no closures - probably had hooks at one time that have been lost. The baby cape is of a wool blend I think with shiny stripes in the fabric. It is cream colored and does have some moth damage to the fabric. It is missing ribbon ties and also some parts of the fluffy marabou trim. This lovely doll is in good condition overall all for a wax doll, but does have a break to the wax at the back shoulder grommet and a tiny ding to one of her thumbs, some light wear to her facial features and loss of stuffing to her upper left arm.
