They are framed by painted lower lashes, a pair of feathered molded brown brows, while she also has a delicate open mouth with two upper teeth, and a dimpled chin. She wears a blond curly mohair wig in a short, cute style. She is on her original wood & composition German Handwerck body, in fabulous condition and original finish, stamped in the backside, and fully-jointed and pose-able, with tight stringing. She wears a pink silk ribbon around her waist and a matching bow in her hair, and wears a white cotton antique dress with lace trim and insertion lace, and tucking, with a full slip underneath in white cotton (antique as well), a pair of white cotton antique pantaloons with lace trim, cream knit socks, and white faux leather shoes with laces.
