All-Original 13" Bridal Costume Antique China Lady
Are there any lucky grooms to be seen? This all-original china bride may be walking down the aisle alone, but her fabulous presentation gives her more than any man can provide. Her completely-original costume is gorgeous in every level of detail, from the net lace veil that hangs down like a train behind her, to the rows and rows of arc ruffles down the front of the skirt.

Faux pearls adorn her neck, while she has a lovely hand-tied bouquet adorn her wrist. Does she not look absolutely stunning? Any lover of china ladies and all-originals will adore this beauty.
