CONDITION: Generally Excellent. Bisque head free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Her eyes sleep well, with nice alignment of pupils. Great modeling and painting of facial features. She does have some darkening of the mold lines on either side of the head, and some wig pulls to the back top of the head. Otherwise, the head is fabulous. The body is in great condition too, with the original finish, and strung well. Seems to be some scrubbing to the hands, where the paint and varnish has worn off. Original antique wig is great. Costume is fabulous and in good condition. This girl need to be held in your loving arms!
