An exquisite early wax over papier mache poupee, this sweet little girl is just a wonderful, all original example, in near mint condition, that any collection would benefit from. If you have been waiting for one of these early beauties with original painting, perfect hair, in restoration FREE condition; this precious lady will absolutely charm you. Dating from the 1870's, she is delicious, but her costume gives her a next-level presentation; a very special grey wool ensemble with red christmas plaid trim, lace trim and a perfect cut. She is a wonderful piece of costume history! And that's not even to mention her wonderful molded hair and hairbow! I love this delightful, glass eyed, orange booted beauty. I know that her striking, all original presentation will ensure she's gone fast, so snap her up before she, too, is marked 'Sale Pending.' She is offered with our Gold level of gifts and guarantees.
This wonderful girl has a wax over papier mache shoulder-head with dark glass eyes with painted brows and delicate pink lips with all original paint, only a very light top coat added to lips. She has superb golden updo with exposed ears, seven barrel curls around the face and down the back, accented by a spectacular large black bow atop her head. She has her wonderful original composition lower legs with painted bright orange boots and original composition arms. Her all original body has her original cloth covering with squeak-box in torso (no-longer squeaks.) This is a wonderful find.
Her spectacular original costume is worth your undivided attention. She sports a STUNNING perfectly tailored charcoal grey walking suit, trimmed with a delicious Christmas plaid with lace trimming at the collar, and cuffs. Plaid buttons and wonderful slight bustle at the back of the jacket. Plaid trim to skirt. The interior of the jacket is so incredible; the level of fit on this dress is perfection. We just don't see this sort of work everyday! Underneath she has all of her original undergarments, including a nice, full half slip, and a sweet pair of cotton pantaloons. What a beauty; we are in love!
Condition: Excellent. She is in very good shape; near perfect head, body in very sturdy shape. There is a tiny bit of touch up to the lips- a top coat was added; and a small craze-line to the crown. This is very stable, and she displays great! The shoes are repainted, but not an uncommon color, the tops with the garters are in original condition. She is an amazing doll in truly wonderful shape with her gorgeous costume.
