She stands at 22.5" tall, with a bisque socket head. Blue glass sleep eyes. They are framed by painted lashes, a pair of feathered flyaway raised brown brows, while she also has a delicate open mouth with four upper teeth, and a dimpled chin. She wears a blond curly mohair wig in a short, cute style. She is on her antique wood & composition body.
She is adorned in a cream silk dress with lace trim and overlay, with a pink silk ribbon around the waist, and a matching bow in her hair. Dress closes in the back with snap buttons, while the sleeves have to be pinned to close around her arms. Underneath goes a white cotton full slip with tucking, and another full slip in a plainer fashion. White cotton pantaloons go underneath, along with cream socks and white faux leather shoes.
Marks: Germany HEINRICH HANDWERCK SIMON & HALBIG 3 1/2 [BACK OF THE HEAD]
Condition: Generally good. The bisque head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, but does have some pepper marks and mold irregularities on the face: note the two dark streaks: one on the right cheek, and another smaller one on the chin. The eyes sleep well and are set nicely. The body has most of the original finish, but does have some overall wear, and the stringing sometimes makes it hard to get her pose just right. Some touchup to the neck and forearms, and areas of wear. The costume is good: the dress is nice and intact, with nice silk. Overall, a sweet girl with nice presentation!
