This is an old beautiful and rare NIADA Artist Lewis Sorensen 25 Inch Wax Portrait Doll Gibson Girl. This gorgeous doll was beautifully modeled in wax by doll artist Lewis Sorensen. His dolls are seldom seen and are highly sought after in the collectible doll market. This doll represents one of his finest. She has a beautiful molded face turned to the left with long neck, brown glass eyes, full lips, and color to her cheeks. The facial wax sculpture is very realistic and extremely beautiful. She has an auburn mohair wig. Her left hand is missing all of her fingers and her right hand is missing a thumb while the wax wrist is bent. She is wearing a beautiful long eyelet lace gown with leg-o-mutton lace sleeves and long train. Pink and white floral braid trims the hem and bodice. There are two butterfly appliques on the hem. The white embroidered organdy costume has aged tan, primarily to the skirt. She is also wearing two layers of petticoats, pantaloons, and pink satin high heels. This doll includes two makers tags, one to the back of her bodice and the other to her pantaloons (Wax Doll/Made and Dressed/by/Lewis Sorensen). Her facial molding is exceptional.
