This fantastic doll has a slight 2 inch hairline on the forehead which we will try to show in the photography, if you look hard you can see it but is hidden under the wig. We took the head off to see markings and then re-glued it so it would be on very securely.
Truly art in bisque possibly created for the Paris Exposition, so regal is her stature.
