She has a glazed china shoulder head, in a pale milky white and smooth glossy finish. Deeply-molded & crisp features are accented with ice blue eyes, painted black tapered brows, and a closed petite mouth with finely rendered lips. She has her dark hair in a middle pair, with soft molded curls. Her cloth antique body stands at 15.25" tall, with antique china arms and new china lower legs. She wears an antique white organdy dress with embroidery/Swiss dotting, with a blue velvet ribbon around the waist. An antique white full slip and pantaloons go underneath.
Condition: Generally Excellent. The china head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Great modeling and painting of features. Minimal rubbing to the back of the hair. There is some minor rubbing to the tip of the nose, and a tiny bit of cheek rubbing -- overall very minor. The body is antique, and has held up well, with only minor age wear, and no rips or tears to compromise her integrity. Old china lower arms, newer lower legs. The costume is lovely and intact. Overall, a great doll.
