She has a bisque shoulder head, with inset originally-set blue glass eyes, with painted lashes, and feathered brows, with a painted closed mouth. Pinned earrings, solid domed head with blond mohair wig in short curls with bangs. On her original cloth body, standing just under 15" tall, with bisque arms (the left one is a replacement), with bisque feet, with painted and molded high-heeled booties with four straps, and etchings on the white stockings. She wears an exquisite silk ensemble, in a lush pink shade with lace overlay and trim, and black butterfly designs. A matching bonnet sits atop the head, with black lace and decorative flowers, while underneath goes a white cotton antique half slip, and matching pantaloons, both with lace trimming.
Marks: 270 dep 2
Condition: Excellent quality bisque head, with no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, hands are perfect, however she does have professional restoration to the left foot. Fabulous modeling and painting, showcasing the best of antique doll modeling. Fabulous sparkling glass eyes. Great original condition cloth body, with essentially no age wear, with strong tight stitching. Her left arm has been replaced. She is overall gorgeous -- if she were selling in mint condition, she would easily command a price of $1200!
