Look at that little pouty expression! Does she not just make you smile? This beautiful Parian girl is sure to brighten up any collection of early china or parian ladies. A pale complexion is accented with blue eyes and blushed cheeks, and a little puckered set of lips. Blond curls are crisply molded atop her head, with a black headband running through. She is on a lovely body, with rare stylized panting to the cloth legs, in the style of a fancy pair of stockings. Her feet are clad in a sewn pair of burgundy leather boots in fabulous condition, with crossed lace-up fronts. Even better, she is adorned in an antique costume, with a black two-faced silk and cotton ensemble! She is truly a beauty, bound to stun. She does have some shoulder plate restoration, so she is being offered at a great price! Do not let this girl get snatched out from under you.

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 and a black headband. She is on her original cloth body, with bisque lower arms, standing at 17" tall. Stylish flowery designs painted directly onto the cloth lower legs, to resemble stockings. Sewn burgundy leather boots, with lace-up fronts.
She wears a black silk and cotton jacket with matching skirt, both fitting her rather nicely and giving her a nice silhouette. A green silk ribbon ties around her waist, on top of a red silk shirt with green velvet cuff trim. Underneath, she wears a white cotton antique slip and pantaloons.
CONDITION: The entire front and back of the plate has been restored. Granted, the coloring is not too noticeable. The head and face are free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration aside from this. The modeling is crisp, and the painting good, especially the hair, which presents well. The body is in good condition, with the bisque arms having no issues, while the lower legs, aside from some minor soil wear, have held up beautifully. The costume is antique, and has held up well over the years. Overall, a lovely girl!
