Armand Marseille really made a sweet-faced girl with this "Rosebud" bisque shoulderhead, who bears a great presentation for the new and experienced collectors alike. With her blue sleep eyes and smooth bisque face, she is sure to please.
She has a bisque shoulder head with expert modeling and crisp detailing, 17" tall. Blue glass sleep eyes are framed by painted upper & lower lashes, feathered brown brows. She has an open mouth with four upper teeth and a dimpled chin. She wears a blond mohair wig in tight, bountiful curls.. She is on her antique kidskin body with bisque lower arms and pin joints at the shoulders, elbows, knees, and thighs. Wears a sweet sky blue washed cotton dress with blue and white scalloped trim, a white cotton full slip with lace trim underneath, and a pair of matching pantaloons with lace trim. Black cotton knit socks and black shoes adorn her feet. A blue ribbon goes around the waist.
