This china lady is a true beauty, with an excellent expression incredible facial modeling. I’ve taken to calling her “Snow,” because whenever I look at her it seems she’s just waiting to be rescued from the woods. She has a molded bow in her hair which is particularly exquisite, and was painted and fired with the rest of her hair. She has a sweet china shoulder head, in a pale milky white and smooth glossy finish. Nicely-molded features are accented with ice blue eyes, painted black tapered brows, while her delicate closed mouth is puckered with two blushed lips, and framed by two chunky cheeks with a very slight blush. Her hair is molded into a detailed up-do of curls, crowned by her molded bow. Her antique china hands are well molded with all fingers intact except for her right thumb, and her antique china feet with flat soles are well modeled and painted an incredible green with painted red ties, and red stocking ties -- some rubbing to the bottom of the shoes. Her cloth body is in fantastic shape and she comes with an incredible bust piece. She stands at 17.5" tall. She wears an all antique costume consisting of an incredible blue velvet, hand sewn top and a gorgeous pale yellow skirt with matching blue piping at the waist. Beneath lies an amazing white cotton full slip with lace trim and white cotton pantaloons with two tucks and lace trim. All together, an absolutely beautiful ensemble. Marks: None Condition: Good. She has a hairline in her plate, a broken thumb and some imperfections from firing. Otherwise, her china quality is top of the line, with soft and sweet modeling, with expert painting and no cracks, chips, or restoration. The black hair is very good, with no major rubs or white spots, with particularly crisp modeling. Her shoes have some rubbing on the bottoms. The replaced cloth body is in almost perfect condition with no major rips or tears, or tears in the stitching. Overall, though, she looks great, especially in her costume, which is in excellent condition. Please do note that the costume closes in part with pins. ***Be sure to check out our other items, and subscribe to our shop for daily notifications and see more fabulous clothing, accessories, dolls and oddities before ANYONE ELSE!
