This beauty will not be around long!
*Yes, she is available on layaway. Feel free to email us or call us at 718-859-0901 for payment details, or an in-hand description of her beauty, or simply send us an email for futher information.*
Painted and highly-detailed china shoulder head, with molded breasts and shoulder blades to the plate. The face has blue eyes, with thinly-painted features, including a rosy-lipped closed mouth. Molded dark blond hair, with gold peineta atop Original china arms, with nice blushing and thin fingers. She stands at 15.5" to the tip of the comb, on her original cotton floral-print body. Legs have been recovered. She is adorned in a beatiful silk dress with patterns, and lace trim. Underneath goes a white cotton full slip with lace trimmed cuffs and front, and a lace-trimmed half slip. Her feet are adorned in red leather shoes.
Condition: Very very good. The china head is absolutely free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with exquisite modeling and painting of the features. In the photos, just check out how deep that modeling is, and how it captures the shadows! The molded breasts are excellent, offering extra bust to the front of the dress she wears. The china hands are lovely, but she is indeed missing two fingers: the thumb on the left hand, and the point finger on the right (see photos). The cotton body is original, with the original desirable floral print, but the legs below the waist have been recovered. Overall, she is a real beauty!
