I cannot express how amazing this doll is- she just did not photograph as well as she looks in person. I have her on the table of my doll room, and of all the girls around, this lady towers over most others and stands out from the crowd with the most beautiful face of the lot. Once in a while a truly gorgeous 109 comes along, and, ladies and gentlemen, this is she; those huge blue eyes, that flowing red hair, and the most exquisite overall presentation! I love everything about her- from her bonnet to her shoes and all that lies in between, she's an extraordinary doll. We are offering her with our Gold Level guarantee and rewards (see below.)
