Bisque socket head with a lovely and unique face, unique to the ED doll. She has thinly-feathered brows, and her original blue glass paperweight eyes, bounded by painted upper and lower lashes, along with an open mouth and four upper teeth. The bisque is pale, with selective blushing to the cheeks for a particularly-lifelike appearance. She wears a dark blond mohair wig in tight spindly curls. She is on her original and rare all-wood body, with straight wrists. Stands at 11.5" tall.
This sweet and lovely little one sports an early vintage costume: a white cotton dress with net lace trim and blue and pink trimmings, a white cotton lace-trimmed bonnet, and white cotton chemise, full slip with lace trim, and matching pantaloons. Cream socks with black shoes. All put together like this, she is sure to please in her new home.
Marks: E 4 D Dep
Condition: Excellent. Bisque head is fabulous, with no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Nice modeling and facial painting. Some minor peppering/speckling, but it is rather faint. In fact, her gives her some character, making it look like she has freckles, rather than peppers to the bisque. Her original blue paperweight eyes just sparkle with blue clarity. And her rare, original all-wood body is clean and nicely-strung. Some wear and scrubbing to the legs, and paint touch-up to the hands. Overall, she's a great little French girl! Don't hesitate to slip her into your doll cabinet!
