There is some rubbing of the black hair on the back of her head that you can see in the photos, it is very typical and overall looks very good.
There are no chips, cracks, or repairs to her head. Doll is on antique cloth body with a small waist. Her quite large hands have individually stitched fingers. The body has stitch jointing at the hip and knee allowing her to sit properly in a chair.
Her antique striped cotton French Fashion Style dress is of an early 1870's sewn with 1860's fabric with separate front buttoned long bodice ruffle trimmed skirt featuring a small bustle back. The dress is expertly styled and sewn.
