One of those gems of days gone by, this beautiful little lady was de-accessioned from a museum collection; and we can see why! Have you ever come across this particular model before? We certainly haven’t, particularly in such a large size! With a stunning grey pompadour up-do and her fabulous arms away holding that letter without one single chip, this precious girl will be one of the stars of your collection, for certain. I adore her aquiline nose, that gentle pink tint and her grey eyes. Delicate yet refined, her sensuous form really gives her that silhouette that half doll collectors look for. With every finger just so, and that delicate aristocratic air, she will utterly charm you and those who visit your collection.

Marks:

22854 (at back) 00 (on bottom)

Additional Number: 78.10120

Condition: Pristine! She was expertly painted without a single skip of the brush; can you just imagine the effort it took to paint every single grey strand of this hair?! It is notable that there are a few spots in her glaze; on the outside of the left hand and on her right arm, but they are very inconsequential and you really need to look to find them. I don’t ever recall coming across this gorgeous model before; particularly in this extra large size. I have included a photograph in natural light so that you can really see the modeling!
