Bisque socket head, with brown glass sleep eyes and painted lashes, thick feathered brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. Dimpled chin and blushed cheeks, with overall sweet and pale complexion. She stands on her original fully jointed wood & composition body, with good original finish. She stands at 21" tall. She wears her original brown human hair antique wig in shoulder-length waves. Her costume is 100% original and antique -- She is adorned in a black wool apron and top, with cream cotton and flower print. Underneath she wears a wool multi-colored skirt just under the apron, and a cream wool antique half slip. Black socks and black oilcloth shoes adorn her feet. It MUST be noted, however, that we shot her pictures from naked to dressed, and had to sew her into her costume, to preserve her originality!
Marks: 1894 AM 7 DEP Made in Germany
Condition: Excellent. This girl has a beautiful bisque head is free of hairlines, cracks, or restoration, and has excellent modeling, offering a beautiful dolly face that truly is alluring. The glass eyes sleep well, and invite you in. There is a very tiny, nearly-microscopic fracture in the left eye, nearly impossible to see. The body is great, with its all original finish. This girl is truly fantastic, it's hard to overplay her presentation value! Remember, again, that she is sewn in to her costume -- there are no buttons or snaps to remove her costume!
