Bisque socket head with a lovely and unique face, particular to the French Lanternier dolls. She has thick feathered brows, and her original dark brown glass set eyes, bounded by painted upper and lower lashes, along with an open mouth and four upper teeth. She wears a brown synthetic wig in long, thin banana curls. She is on her original French wood and composition body, repainted. Stands at 25.5" tall.
She is adorned in a lovely costume. She wears a matching deep plum purple velvet hat with teal blue and purple feathers. It matches well with a black and navy blue dress with black lace overlay, and navy blue velvet ruffled front. A lovely brass pin sits on the collar. Underneath goes a black full slip with a net half slip attached underneath to add some volume. White cotton pantaloons with lace trim and three rows of tucking adorn her legs, along with black cotton long socks and black faux leather boots with four buttons.

Condition: Generally Good. She is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. However, she does have a few rubs to the cheeks and forehead, with the most prominent on the right cheek -- see the photos! Back of the bisque head has some minor dirt wear. Nice modeling and facial painting, however. The glass eyes are set. The body has been repainted, but fits her well and is sturdy. The costume is good and in good condition, with nice presentation. Overall, a sweet girl with no big excuses!
