Blue glass sleep eyes give a glowing life to her face; along with a nicely-modeled expression, and crisp painting. Her original old cloth body has the original paper mache limbs, in great original painted condition – what more could you ask for? A sweet yet simple all original costume makes her presence known, preparing her to look fabulous in your collection cabinet. Do not hesitate to make her yours!
Paper mache painted shoulder head with solid dome top, with affixed short caracule mohair wig in pale blond. Blue glass sleep eyes with painted features and feathered brown brows. Open mouth with four upper teeth. Original cloth body with paper mache limbs, with detailed shoes and socks painted. Stands at 11” tall.
Dressed in her delightful original costume: white cotton dress with lace trim, and matching half slip and pantaloons underneath. Multi-colored plaid ribbon, and a white cotton bonnet with lace trim.
CONDITION: Overall Excellent! Paper mache is in great condition, with no crazing or discoloration. This doll is truly in excellent condition. There is only a tiny rub to the left cheek, and an extremely minor eye flake to the lower left lid. The limbs and body are fabulous, with no excuses; age wear is barely visible on the cloth, while the limbs are still a nice glossy sheen, with the leg details still very visible and clear. The costume is very good, with no issues.
