She has a bisque socket head, with molded and painted eyes with black irises, tapered brown brows, and a closed mouth with blushed lips and slightly rosy cheeks. She wears her original brown wig in a wraparound braid style. She stands at just under 12" tall, on her original composition body, with straight limbs.
She wears her partially-original costume: a white lacy apron with frill and swiss dotting. Black ribbon around the hair, with lace. Antique original black cotton dress with a cream net half slip underneath. Old original lace socks and black leather shoes.
Marks: P SFBJ 60 PARIS 12/0
Condition: Red firing line to the front of the forehead, coming down from the rim. This is inherent to the firing process, and was not damage after release on the market. There is also a thin rim split to the back of the head. Both of these are visible in the photos. The bisque has a reddish tint -- not the most excellent quality there is, but the face is cute. The body has moderate wear, with flaking to the composition finish particularl on the torso. Dirt and age wear to the hands. Note that the costume is partially sewn on, so it cannot be removed. We are happy to answer any questions via phone or email.
