This is such a lovely Bahr & Proschild 224. She has a delightful expression and she is costumed beautifully in a “Sunday Best” blue velvet dress with the most intricate black embroidery. It would certainly be hard for any doll lover to pass up this precious sweetheart. If you really seek out exquisite, antique dolls in excellent condition, put this girl as the highest priority on your list because a gem like this will not be here long. Not to mention, this is one of those dolls that will hold her resale value, and even go up as time goes on because she is beautiful and rare! What more could we ask for?
She has a lovely bisque socket head on a fully jointed Sonneberg composition and wood body with jointed wrists. Original light blue fixed eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke stacked brows, open mouth with four upper teeth, pierced ears, dimpled chin, lovely blond mohair wig with extensions.
She is dressed in a very lovely blue velvet dress with elaborate black embroidery on the full skirt, mutton chop sleeves, lace front overlay with black bows and black lace edging, antique cream underwear with lace trim and matching pantaloons, black cotton knit socks and black leather high button shoes. A very charming presentation overall.
CONDITION: Excellent. Perfect and lovely pale, glowing bisque with expert decoration of features as well as very crisp modeling of her very sweet face distinguished by her expressive mouth and inner cheek dimples. The earlier original Sonneberg body in good, original finish, condition with minor and typical age wear! A really lovely doll produced for the French market—just one look at her adorable face and you will be delighted!
