Antique Parian Limbach Porzellanfabrik Lady Doll with High Collar 12"
Don't let your other lady dolls get too jealous, for this lovely parian lady by Limbach has arrived to steal the show! Beautiful, exquisite parian modeling gives us an impeccable complexion, with precise and expertly-done features. Ice blue painted eyes stare off into the distance, while her pale face is warmed slightly by blushed cheeks. An elegant high-necked collar has been molded onto her shoulder plate, setting her apart for sure. Her fabulous up-do style exposes her ears, and is topped with a nice bow. Adorned in a lovely costume out of gorgeous antique fabrics, she is BOUND to impress! These ladies are getting harder to come by, so all of you china and parian lovers, you had better make sure she is yours before she's gone!

Lovely pale parian shoulder head, with precise modeling and painting of features to carry across a nice lady-like face. Ice blue painted eyes, dark tapered brows, and blushed cheeks, with a molded open/closed mouth. Black hair molded into a stylish updo, with a blue bow molded atop. Nice intricate high-collared modeled into the shoulder plate, with ruffled shirt molding and little gold detailing. The body is a newer replacement, but suits her well, with cloth and white kidskin arms. She stands at 12 " tall.
She wears a beautiful ensemble, out of antique fabrics. It is bound to impress, and is very convincing, as if it could very well be her original costume! It's a silvery blue ensemble with form-fitting top and skirt, out of an antique silk fabric. Underneath goes an antique half slip with broderie anglaise and scalloped edging, and lace-trimmed pantaloons. The skirt comes off, and the top closes with buttons, but the sleeves are partially sewn onto her arms. We did not undo this, and left the top on, but pull it away in the photos so you can sufficiently see the plate.
Marks: 18552/ [illegible] 83 [back of plate]
Condition: Generally excellent! The parian bisque shoulder head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Nice modeling and painting of features; particularly good is that the gold painting on the collar is mostly still intact. Some very minor gray spots, nearly invisible, on the front of the plate. The body is a newer replacement, in a white kidskin, but looks very nice, and suits her well. Costume is lovely, with only the most minor of wear to the back closures and to the front surface. Again, the costume top is partially sewn onto her arms, so we did not fully remove it. She is a beautiful lady indeed!
