Important! It must be noted that this lovely girl appears to have been sewn into her costume: the whole dress fits her like a glove. We undid the back seam, but the sleeves are not coming off the arms; as a result, we were unable to remove her costume, without cutting open all of the dress seams. We have done our best to examine the body underneath.
CONDITION: Excellent. Gorgeous, pale bisque with expert and delicate painting of features, crisp and deep modeling of an absolutely gorgeous face, pleasant, subtle color. The glass eyes sparkle, and sleep well. The wood & composition body with shiny original finish and in great condition with only minor age wear. The hands are in great condition, with a shiny finish and no chips or missing fingers! This girl is a real darling.
