16” Antique Poured Wax Doll 1880 most likely Pierotti or at least Pierotti Look it is really hard to tell. Doll has glass eyes and a nice full head of hair that is rooted & inserted human hair one hair at a time. Lovely Wax head, arms and lower legs.
Fascinating pale blue glass eyes peer serenely from the sweet face of this 16" Pierotti wax doll. She is unmarked and looks like the work of Pierotti.
Excellent condition with inserted original dark blonde mohair, lid-lines and pink lips. Cloth body is very clean and doll looks un-played with.
The body is cotton-stuffed and very nice, stitch-jointed at shoulders, with no damages and no repairs. She looks like part of one thumb that is missing. Could be original to her. This child looks so much like a new born baby that just entered into this world.
The gorgeous batiste, lace and insertion dress was made with antique fabric as was her bonnet, has a antique petticoat to complete this dear child. Very clean and from a non-smoking environment.
