Dressed her best and ready to take her place on the ballroom floor! Are there any china boys offering to take her hand for a dance? This exquisite 27.5" antique china lady is just waiting to be adored by her doll peers, and a new mother or father! Beautiful crisply-modeled china makes up her glossy face and head, with an expression that has just the tiniest bit of coy charm! She adorned in a lovely matching ensemble, with layers of fluffy underthings, all on top of an exquisite all-original antique corsetted body! The original cross stitching down the front is designed to match the real-like corsets worn by fashionable ladies, done in a light blue, while her feet are covered in dark red soft leather, with cross ties up the fronts to resemble laces. All original antique leather hands with stitched-together fingers finish off this beautiful lady's body -- truly, this girl is unique, and is bound to be set apart from all the others! She's available on layaway, so you can take your time to pay!

China shoulder head with expert painting and modeling of features; ice blue eyes with tapered brows, and blushed cheeks, and lightly-accented shaded lips. Black curls, deeply molded, covering her ears. On the original antique cloth body with RARE pale blue corset torso with front lacing, leather arms with stitched individual fingers, and red soft leather boot feet with frontal lacing. She stands at 27.5" tall. She is adorned in a nice ensemble: cream cotton with crimson print and trim, in top and skirt. Underneath goes a matching white cotton half slip and pair of pantaloons.
Condition: Excellent! The china head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, while the face has great modeling and painting of features. The body has held up beautifully, particularly those leather arms, which often fall apart or take lots of damage over the years; this girl, however, has held up very well, with the leather in great shape, with only some minor overall age wear. The cloth of the body is clean and sturdy, with only an old patchwork to the upper left thigh. The leather boots are doing well, with some minor age wear, but no ripping or major threading. This lady is a pure GEM.
