What a sweetheart! In her little striped silk dress, all original body in perfect condition, delightful face with all original painting and blue sleep eyes- this girl has it all! And her 9.5" fits-in-the-palm-of-your-hand size, she is perfect for displaying as the toy of a larger doll, or slipping quietly into the cabinet. With her desirable Milliner's Model body with painted wooden feet, but hard to find Motschmann hands, she is a super rare example, we've only seen a few others like her! Just a dream, I know her new parent will be extra proud of her!
All original wax over papier mache head with bright blue glass sleep eyes, delicately painted lips, precious features and beautiful all original body. She has an early mohair wig in a russet color that fits her very nicely. The beautiful little gold and cream striped silk dress that she's wearing is a beautiful little piece, probably a copy made from the pattern of her original dress as it has the open color, early victorian lace, and the perfect proportions for her petite size. She is completed with a fanciful hat with blue flowers.
Condition: Excellent, original finish condition; she is missing a little bit of facial paint (mainly, one eyebrow) other than that, she is in great shape, with only a little bit of scuffing to the nose and general agewear, but a gem none the less!
