***Our stunning 1009 is available on layaway! Give our office a call anytime at 718.859.0901 to hear an in hand description of her condition, or to discuss layaway options.**
Bisque socket head on a fully jointed composition and wood body. Brown glass set eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke flat thick brows, open mouth with four upper teeth, dimpled chin, pierced ears. She stands on her original wood & composition body, fully-jointed, with a nice original finish and great tight stringing. She wears a short blond mohair wig in tight curls. She stands at 11.5".
She wears a pink cotton vintage dress with white lace trimming. Underneath goes antique underwear: a half slip with lace trim, and pantaloons with eyelet lace trim and three rows of tucking on each legs. White socks and brown faux leather shoes adorn her feet.
MARKS: S 3 H 1009 DEP St.
CONDITION: Generally excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Nice pale color, with expertly-done features. Nice modeling and painting. She does have a small dark grey speck on the right side of the neck -- this seems to be an issue inherent to the bisque mold, and is not actual damage after the fact. The face is lovely, with big bright eyes with great pupil alignment. The body is very nice, with all original finish, with only the most minor of expected age wear. Nice tight stringing allows for good poses. The costume is good. Overall, a lovely doll!
