CONDITION: Very good. Gorgeous, pale bisque with expert and delicate painting of features, crisp and deep modeling of an absolutely gorgeous face, pleasant, subtle color. Free of cracks, chips, restoration or hairlines. There is a little squiggly mark in the upper right forehead, which appears to be a hair caught in the mold during the doll manufacture. The glass eyes sparkle and are with great pupil alignment; the right eye does have a minor craze along the bottom of the iris. The wood & composition body with shiny original finish and in great condition. Her hands are great, with the only exception being some very minor craze lines to the right hand, and a finger reglued to the left hand. The torso has some minor touchup just under the right arm. Overall, she is a great girl!
