Elegance and beauty intertwine to create one of the most lovely Parian ladies to come by our shop. Delicate and super-fine blond hair is done up in a fancy style, exhibiting some of the most intricate mold work we have seen in these porcelain ladies. Ocean blue eyes stare off longingly into the distance, while a pale face has a closed mouth with blushed cheeks. Collar modeling continues down the mint condition shoulder plate, while the original cloth body and leather arms bring her to a 21" standing height. A lovely period-appropriate dress adorns her body, with her original and antique underwear adorns her underneath. This is the type of lady you want in your collection: excellent condition, wonderful presentation, and crisp, unique modeling. Do not pass up a chance to have this beauty watch over your collection! She is indeed available on a layaway plan, so you can take your time to pay. Do not hesitate another moment!

Pale white parian bisque shoulder head, with crisp and delicate facial modeling to exhibit the likeness of a young woman or lady. Deeply-modeled eyes have blue irises, with a closed mouth with blushed lips, and nice blushing to give her that extra life. Her goldenrod blond hair is delicate and deeply modeled into sharp curls, in an up-do style with exposed ears. She is on her original cloth body, with kidskin lower arms with individual fingers, standing at 21" tall.
She is adorned in a gorgeous dress; crafted from period-appropriate antique cotton in a printed cream, it has black velvet trimming. Underneath goes her all-original antique underwear in cream colors: two half slips, pantaloons, and chemise. Brown leather shoes
CONDITION: Excellent. The parian shoulderhead is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The modeling is crisp, sharp, and clean, as is the painting, showing an excellent portrayal of a lady's likeness. This head must have been one of the earliest out of the mold, due to its sharp and crisp modeling. Cloth body is original, with only the most minor of age and discoloration wear. Some minor patchwork reinforcement to the original leather arms. Costume is great, with no issues. Overall, a lovely lady!
