Wow, this girl is about to turn some heads! She has a great presentation, with her light blue eyes and fur brows that just make her so distinctive, but that’s not all! She’s on her absolutely fantastic original finish marked body, which is NEAR PERFECT! When it comes to antique dolls, both the presentation and the condition matter, and this girl really has both in spades! She has square-cut teeth too, making her all the more special! What does this girl not have? She’s available on layaway too, so you can take your time to pay!

***Yes, she is available on layaway! Give us a call at 718-859-0901 for payment details or layaway options, or to discuss this doll!***

Bisque socket head with original blue glass sleep eyes with painted lower lashes, real fur brows, and an open mouth with four upper square-cut teeth. Nice smooth complexion, with pleasant dolly features. On her original wood & composition body, with beautiful original shiny finish and varnish, with almost no age wear, with great hands and original GERMANY stamp. She stands at 22" tall and wears a deep goldenrod human hair wig with parted bangs and banana curls. She is adorned in a white cotton antique dress with some lace trim and insertion lace to the cuffs, with subtle blue threading. A white cotton antique bonnet with eyelet designs graces her head, while underneath she wears a white cotton half slip, white cotton pantaloons with lace trim. White knit socks and white felt shoes adorn her feet, while a blue ribbon goes around her waist.

MARKS: E 1/2 made in 9 1/2 Germany 197 [HEAD] GERMANY 3369 [BACK OF TORSO]

CONDITION: Excellent. Very beautiful glowing bisque with pleasant color, finely painted features, well modeled face with nice expression. Head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The body in all original finish condition, with great shiny finish, and the original GERMANY 3369 stamp on the back (see photos). Hands are great with no missing fingers; just a very minor dirt wear. The only minor problems for the body are touchups to the toes on both feet, particularly the left one. A very minor indent on the back of the torso (visible in photos). Overall, a fabulous girl no doubt!
