This is a Stunning Antique Lady Dagmar German Parian Doll 24 Inch Original Silk Costume. The date 1860-70 is written on the back of her white cotton slip. Lady or Princess Dagmar is a gorgeous with detailed and crisp blonde molded curls and headband to the top of her head and clip band to the back of her head. She has beautiful hand painted features, blue eyes, and high color to her cheeks. She has pierced ears which are holding dangle earrings. She has a Parian shoulderhead on a sawdust stuffed cloth body with leather arms and blue leather shoes (some deterioration to the leather; the right thumb stitching has come loose). The leather arms have a split to the left arm but it is protected and reinforced by her long original old lace mitt gloves that were expertly stitched around the arms. Her original hand stitched two piece lined wheat color silk taffeta gown is exquisite and includes beautiful lace collar, bow brooch and gold metal leaf cluster accents. The lined skirt is pleated with a train in back. The bodice closes down the front with antique hooks and embroidered loops. Underneath she has a white cotton lace trimmed petticoat, another shorter slip and lace trimmed pantaloons. There is an old string tag pinned to her petticoat that reads 58/Chrystal.
