This little lady is of white bisque. It’s the type that collectors used to refer to as "stone bisque" which meant that it is not as fine a texture as the earlier untinted bisque dolls (so-called Parian).

This example is a particularly nice one, with well painted features and a smoother texture than most. She has the simple bisque lower arms and legs usually found on these dolls, her feet have molded, painted shoes with a little bit of a heel.
She has been beautifully costumed long ago, in antique lace and silk ribbon. The person who dressed her put a lining of buckram under her skirt which allows her to stand on her own (very clever!).

She would be a nice addition to a doll house or room box.
