Wearing a lovely antique baby gown, this unique girl will have no problem making friends with the other dollies in your collection -- just expect her to be a little moody sometimes!

Wax two-faced head on a swivel, allowing for two distinct faces. Nice modeling of the wax gives two faces with very different presentations: one is a blue-eyed, smiling girl with blond human hair wig, while the other is a frowning, pouting brown-eyed, brown-haired girl. Both have glass eyes, with blushed details. Antique lacy bonnet sits atop the head with openings on either side for face visibility. She is on her original pink cloth body with wax limbs, standing at 19" tall.
She is wearing in a white cotton antique dress, with net lace front and decorative embroidery flowers, with lace trim at the neck and sleeves. A pink silk ribbon goes around her waist, while underneath she wears a white cotton antique full slip, diaper, and crochet booties with pink ties.
Condition: She is very lovely with only some repaint to the features, visible In photos. Considering the nature of wax, these dolls have a tendency to take a turn for the worse over the years, but this particular wax doll has held up rather well, with only minimal age crazing to the wax, and a few stray lines. The glass eyes on both faces are wonderfully, although she does seem to have a bit of touchup to both noses. The painting on the blond face's brows and eyes is excellent, while it has faded slightly on the brown-eyed face. The original wigs are intact, while the bonnet sits securely sewn on top of the head. The cloth body is in great shape, with no real damage or wear. The wax limbs are good, with soft modeling, and free of any broken fingers or major cracks. This is a lovely girl. The costume is great as well, with no major shredding or moth holes, suiting the doll rather well.
