This is a fabulous and rare antique googly doll measuring 8" tall. Dressed in original velvet black costume, accented with antique metallic trim and velvet bow. Antique underclothing. Five piece composition body appears to be in nice condition, but we did not remove her clothing.Jointed at arms and legs. Painted socks and butterscotch shoes. One leg is longer than the other, but this may have something to do with the string of her legs. Her bisque is lovely. Two small lines in back of head resemble scratches done in the making of the doll. Painted eyebrows, painted tiny eyelashes (upper), open closed mouth with tiny teeth exposed. Rosy and rose blushed chubby cheeks. Set dark blue glass eyes glancing to one side. Mohair wig styled in two long braids. Lacy collar for costume has a few minor holes in back panel. Small cluster of tiny dots on one hand look like coffee colored paint splatter. A fabulous and rare model. Marked 0 on the back of neck.

Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. Contact me for additional photos. If you are seeking a collectible which looks brand new please reconsider purchasing. Our items are as described, but descriptions are subjective, after all. Please note, if an item is returned within our 3 day return window, your payment will be returned, minus a 3 percent restocking fee (which represents credit card fees which are never refunded to us by the processing companies). This applies only to orders which have been paid for via Mastercard, VISA, etc. We do not issue refunds for shipping.
Layaway is available. A 20 percent non refundable deposit will secure the item and we will work with you regarding the length of the layaway. We are fairly flexible, but require a payment each month. No refunds on layaway. Our policy requires post dated checks sent to us at one time(domestic customers), where we can cash each payment each month, according to the date on the check.

Please note, Ruby Lane's calculated shipping is an estimate and sometimes can be intimidating. Rest assured, I only charge my actual shipping costs and will refund any excess you have paid. USPS shipping rates (both domestic and international) continue to increase. I ship based on size of box (anything over 12" is considered oversized and charged a surcharge by USPS), weight, insurance and priority, first class or express options. I will refund any excess you have paid. I do combine shipping for multiple purchases.
