This wonderful girl has a wax over papier mache shoulder-head with blue paperweight set eyes with painted feathered brows, painted upper and lower lashes, and delicate pink lips with all original paint. She has her original antique wig, in mohair, in a deep goldenrod with cropped bangs. She has her original cloth body with kidskin arms, in incredible condition. She wears an original ring on her individual kidskin finger.
She wears a gorgeous dress in black antique velvet, with black faceted jet buttons, small cameo, and gorgeous antique lace trim and overlay, well suited to this girl and appropriate to her period in terms of styling. We're not quite sure when the piece itself was made, but it is made out of extraordinary antique fabrics for sure, and hand stitched. A vintage straw taupe hat sits on her head with flower decoration. Underneath goes an antiqe white cotton full slip with scalloped trim, an antique white cotton half slip with tucking and broderie anglaise, and a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons with lace trim. She wears black vintage real leather boots with three button closures, with high heels.
Condition: Fabulous. Her wax over paper mache head is incredible, with a clean face that is exceptional alluring. Only the most minor of wear is there on the face, which is rare to find with such wax face dolls. Her cloth body has no tears or major repairs or patchwork, and is very clean, bearing only the most minimal of age wear, while the kidskin arms are great.
