Presentation Piece 100% Antique Nurse Costume Parian Lady 17"
With parian ladies, there is nothing quite like a fabulous costume to bring her to the forefront; nothing like a unique presentation to catch the eye of the collector -- this darling girl is ready and equipped to check on any dolls in need. She's sweet from head to toe, and a real attention-grabber. As the years go by, I always find myself particularly proud of the dolls I have amassed in my personal collection which have their own unique personalities... This girl has precisely that. She is even available on a short layaway, if you want to take your time to pay. Do not hesitate to make her yours.
*Yes, this exquisite girl is available on layaway! We are sure to have a payment plan that fits your budget -- up to six months -- just give us a call at 718.859.0901 to discuss layaway terms or send a note at checkout!*
She has a fine parian shoulder head with delicate painting, excellent rendering of features and ice blue painted & molded eyes. She has deeply-molded blond curls, in a short style, with the bottoms of the ears visible. She has a closed mouth with blushed accenting and an overall lush complexion. She has parian hands, and is on her original cloth body, standing just under 17" tall. She is wearing an adorable antique nurse costume, starting with a white and blue striped cotton dress, with back snap buttons, and front waist ribbon. She wears a white and red stripped cotton antique apron on top, with a button back and antique "REBUILDING THE WORLD" pin. Atop her head she wears a white cotton antique handkerchief head scarf, with lace trim. Underneath it all she wears a white cotton antique half slip with broderie anglaise and matching antique pantaloons. Cream knit socks and white felt shoes adorn her feet. Marks: 182 DEP
Condition: Excellent. Her bisque head is lovely, and is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with pleasant modeling and great expert painting of features. Her china hands are great, and free of chips, while she maintains her original cloth body. Her antique costume is fabulous, and structural intact.
