24" Antique Bisque Florodora by Armand Marseille. Lovely girl with a slightly turned head. She has a beautiful face, no two Armand Marseille dolls ever look the same. This lovely girl has dark brown stationary eyes and finely painted upper and lower lashes. Her light brows are nicely feathered and match her original mohair wig. She has an open mouth with four teeth and a peaches and cream cheek coloring. Her light brown mohair wig is in soft waves and has the original pate. Doll has her original leather body with pin joints for easy sitting. Her heavy bisque arms are nicely molded. Doll has her original Forodora label with just a small part missing. Her cloth lower legs are very fat but her feet are small. She wears a beautiful teal blue velvet dress with a matching bonnet. The dress has a white satin pleated bodice with a ruffled trim. The sleeves have a fitted cuff with a full upper sleeve. The buttons at cuff unbutton for easy dressing. The back of dress snaps closed but has decorative buttons. Dress is lined and beautifully made. Antique white pantaloons, white stockings and vintage cream leatherette shoes complete her look. Doll is in beautiful condition with no hairline cracks or chips in her head. Her bisque is smooth with even coloring. One hand has a small repair at fingertip but it is hard to see and does not detract. Her leather body is solid with no sagging. She does have some leather patch mends on her upper arms and one knee gusset, they are nicely done though and do not detract. Her hair is a little thin in the back but it is original to doll and matches her eyebrows so it is best to keep her all original. Doll's dress is in beautiful condition very clean with no stains. Marks: 370 AM 5 D.E.P. Armand Marseille. Circa 1890's. Beautifully dressed Florodora doll with a lovely expression.
