Large antique bisque girl with cat circa 1880. This bisque is quite large at 10 inches tall. The bisque has beautiful hand painting. She has a painted red line above her eye and lower eyelashes. She has a blue ribbon in her upswept hair and the darling kitten she holds has a pink bow. She wears gold colored Victorian earrings. She has raised balls along her gown, which is falling off her shoulder and is unbuttoned in back.
She has a very slight imperfection in the base with a minimal flaw as pictured. I believe this occurred in its manufacturing process. There is some loss to the pink ribbon color on the kitten. I examined the figure under black light and there are no repairs. There is an impressed mold number under the base with remnants of an old sticker on the bottom.
