CONDITION: Excellent. Bisque head free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Overall, her bisque is gorgeous, and her eyes sleep well, with that traditional Hertel & Schwabb icy blue. Great modeling and painting of facial features. There is paint touchup to the neck of the torso and the arms. The body is in good condition too, with the original finish, and strung well, but some significant surface scrubbing to the knees and legs. Costume is fabulous and in great condition. This girl need to be held in your loving arms!
