Bisque socket head with a lovely and unique face, particular to the French Lanternier dolls. She has thick feathered brows, and her original blue glass sleep eyes (now set in place), bounded by painted upper and lower lashes, along with an open mouth and four upper teeth. She wears a blond mohair wig that comes down to her shoulders in golden curls. She is on her original French wood and composition body. Stands at 22.5" tall.
She wears a cream faux straw hat with a wide brim atop her head. Blue dress with teddy bear print, and velcro closure in the back. Cream wool slip with tie string closure and lace trim. White cotton pantaloons with lace trim, closable with pins. White socks and cute pale blue felt shoes.
Marks: Limoges FRANCE 10
Condition: Generally Excellent. Bisque head is excellent, and is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Nice modeling and painting of features, capturing that lovely French "look". The original sleep eyes are good, and on the original rocker, but have been set into place. Eyes are nice and clean with no fissures, and have good alignment. The body is the antique original wood & composition body. The body has some moderate wear here and there, with areas of flaking, and major flaking to the right foot tip, exposing the composition underneath. The hands are repainted on top of flaking composition. Costume is good. Overall, she's a really cute girl!
