An outstanding wig from my private stock, this hand tied beauty is really as good as they get for the collector of fine antique wigs for their beauties. A beautiful example in a rich, golden color, the thick clumps of hair used for the knots here creates a very thick quality, echoing a human child's head of hair. I especially love the multidimensionality of the color, as we only ever see this level of real tonality in these early humanhair wigs. Certainly produced in france (as indicated by the style of the hand tie and the remnants of cork pate within, this wig is fit for the finest golden era bebe. If you are looking for a breathtaking bebe as well as a fabulous wig to crown her, our fabulous model is for sale, too, and can be found in our shop at RLI-1488. We find blond to be most becoming on her!
Measurements: Up to 14" circumference (though we recommend smaller to get the full effect of the curls) Curl length: Between 5-7"
Condition: Excellent. The wig is in fabulous shape, the cap is nearly entirely intact except for one small section at the upper part of the center.
