I am always elated to find a Rubens head vase with most of her paint intact. Most of the Rubens head vases were cold painted meaning the paint was applied after she was fired making it prone to wear. Amazingly enough this pretty girl has survived with most of her paint all intact! She has huge baby blue eyes and her hair is tucked being her ears to show off her stylish pierced ears with faux pearl earrings to match her necklace. I love that she is squeaky clean since this washing these girls is a no-no!
Condition: Very good condition for a Rubens with only minimal paint loss on the edge of her ruffled blouse, some highlight rubs in her bangs and a speck or two here or there. She has no chips or cracks or crazing. Clean inside and out except for a little bit of floral foam left down inside. No staining.
