Bisque socket head with beautiful modeling and expert painting, with big brown glass sleep eyes. Gorgeous almond-shape eyes, giving her that unique look. The eyes are framed by painted lashes, and high-quality flat feathered brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth and a dimpled chin, with lightly blushed cheeks. Overall pale and creamy complexion to the bisque, making her an exceptional presentation girl! Her ears are pierced and she wears a pair of earrings in them. She wears her 100% original and antique blond mohair wig, with the wig cap still in great condition, and the hair with nice fluffy curls. She is on her original wood & composition cryer body, which still works very well! Both "Mamma" and "Poppa" pull strings work well, giving a nice clear crying sound. Original band around the torso is sturdy and intact, where the body was halved for installation of the cryer mechanism. Exceptional pose-ability and stringing, with nice original finish. Original mark on the back of the torso. She stands at 21" tall.
She is adorned in her 100% original and antique costume. She has a pink bow sitting atop her head, while she wears her original antique white cotton dress, with six rows of tucking along the bottom. Insertion ribbon decorates the waist and sleeves, while lots of lace trim decorates the piece. Underneath, she wears a white cotton antique half slip with four rows of tucking, and lace-trimmed original antique pantaloons underneath. Black cotton antique socks adorn her feet, along with her gorgeous original antique black oilcloth shoes with short black heels.
