She has an open mouth with four upper teeth and a dimpled chin. She wears a platinum blond mohair wig in tight, bountiful curls. She has pierced ears with earrings. She is on her antique kidskin body with bisque lower arms and gusset knees and thighs . She wears an all antique costume; stating with a white cotton dress with frontal tucking and leaf lace trim, and back closure. Underneath goes a white cotton antique half slip with two rows of lace trim, and a pair of antique pantaloons. Cream cotton socks adorn her feet, along with a pair of faux leather shoes with ties.
MARKS : 10-SH4 [These are pencil marks, indicating the engraved mark beneath the kidskin, which covers the bottom back portion of the plate]
CONDITION : Excellent. Bisque is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The painting is excellent and the modeling is crisp and detailed. Antique kidskin body in great condition; arms are kind of delicate as always with these types of dolls, so be careful! Color of kidskin is pale and good with no major wear or tear; only the most minor overall aging. She is, overall, a great girl.
