This lovely French doll has a bisque socket head, blue glass paperweight inset eyes, painted lashes, rose blushed eye shadow, brush-stroked brows, accented nostrils, slightly-parted lips, outlined lips with decorative glaze, a row of tiny porcelain teeth, and pierced ears. She has an antique dark brunette human hair wig over a cork pate, and a French composition and wooden fully-jointed body with original finish. She has a small kiln crack on the rim of her head, which is stable. Her price reflects this small flaw and is a great opportunity to add a doll by an eminent French maker to your collection. She wears a beautiful silk costume made by a professional Russian seamstress with a French-style netting hat and leather shoes.
