Composition Bride Doll 14 Inch Open Mouth Teeth Vtg 1940s X Circle Mark
We are offering this lovely all original 14 inch composition bride doll, dating to the 1940s. She has sleep eyes with lashes and an open mouth with teeth.
Face: An endearing sweet face, with all color intact. Painted brows, faux upper lashes and painted lower lashes, bright red lips, flushed cheeks, gray shadow above eyes, and an open mouth smile with teeth. Blue sleep eyes great condition and work perfectly. Just one tiny nick to the flesh color above one upper lash.
Hair: Mohair wig that still appears to be in the original set, a rolled style typical of the 1940s. Nice condition, with no odors.
Clothing: All original. Taffeta wedding gown, with ruffles at neckline, sleeves and bottom. Taffeta headdress with tiny faux flowers and a double net veil, one shorter length (to go over face ?) and a longer train that extends to the bottom of the gown in the back. Net in good condition, but does have several holes. Gown in perfect condition, except for light areas of age staining. Full underslip in perfect condition, again, with some light age staining. Undies, shoes and socks perfect. Faux pearl necklace. Clothing has no odors - smells great.
Body: Face and body light overall crazing. Couple of spots top of each leg with more pronounced crazing, but does not appear to be fragile. One hand has open crazing on the side of finger and another small one on palm side of a finger. Both appear sound. All fingers and toes intact. Head, arm and leg joints wobbly, so might need some attention.
Marks: Large X in circle on back of head.
