An incredible all original example for the collector who wants nothing less than the best, this doll is in mint condition with everything going for her. Every collection must have at least one of these beauties, and this example is singular in her presentation and panache. I love her wig and antique dress, but no more than I love her sweet face and spiral blue eyes.
**Take your time to pay for this singular doll. She is available for a 6-month layaway plan! Give us a call anytime at 718-859-0901, if you want to hear more about this beauty in-hand!***
She has a lovely bisque socket head, with a smooth and creamy pale finish, and deep modeling of features. She bears that lovely, special dolly expression you love, with bright and vibrant blue glass sleep eyes with wax lids, painted upper and lower lashes, molded and feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth and dimpled chin. Her ALL ORIGINAL chocolate brown mohair wig sits atop her head, in loose banana curls, with a pale blue ribbon. She stands at 25" tall, on her original wood & composition fully jointed body, with its lovely, ALL ORIGINAL finish! Her hands are in excellent condition as well -- truly, this girl is PRISTINE!
She is outfitted in her FABULOUS, all-original antique crispy whites, with just the right amount of lace and ruffles! First off is a lovely antique cotton organdy dress in a pale white, with tucking at the bottom, with inset lace and lace trim, with flowery designs, as well as on the cuffs and collar, forming a thin netting on the breast with frill trim, while a lovely super soft ANTIQUE SILK ribbon goes around her waist. She wears a white cotton bonnet that is absolutely darling, with lace trim, while underneath goes a fabulous antique white cotton full slip with lace trim and tucking, and a pair of lace trimmed pantaloons, in antique white cotton. Her feet are clad by white waffleknit cotton socks, and her original pair of antique tan oil cloth shoes. There is nothing about this girl that is not ALL ORIGINAL ANTIQUE, and she just BOASTS history! We recommend snagging her up ASAP, because she won't be here long...
CONDITION: Excellent. Fine quality bisque head with pleasant coloring, skilled painting of features, very crisp and deep modeling of attractive dolly face. The original body in excellent original finish condition, with pristine hands -- this girl couldn't be any prettier. Her clothes are in very good condition as well, with only the minor expected age wear from such pieces. Overall, we couldn't be happier; this girl is just GORGEOUS!
