An extraordinary, lush antique human hair wig c.1890, period-appropriate for golden age Bebes, this particular example is just lush! Hand tied, in wonderful shape the interior of the cap is hand stitched, and the hair is in wonderful condition. Beautiful, crisp, sharp banana curls come down in swirls on the doll's shoulders, framing her face in a lovely chocolatey brown. This is one accessory you cannot turn down -- gift it to your French bisque Bebe of choice! The fine quality of this wig really makes it stand out as a grade A piece, especially for the collector interested in curating authentic antique settings, costumes, and vignettes for their dolls. I know that this prime piece will not be here long.

**We now ship EVERY SINGLE ONE of our antique costume pieces and wigs in archival, museum quality, acid free tissue paper. We store them in an acid free, climate controlled environment, because we want you to get a textile or wig that has been frozen in time. As curators of these antiques, we want them to be as fresh for the next generation of students and enthusiasts as they were for us. This is factored into the price of our merchandise. We hope you can enjoy these rare finds for years to come, and we want to make sure that when they reach you, they are ready for careful love and display if you so chose, or to be stored in a destruction-free paper. Happy shopping!** LBS, 2/11/16
