There is a special place in every collector's heart for the irresistible allure of the china lady... Timeless and elegant, these milky-white madames have charmed doll lovers all around the world, ever since they were first made available in the 1800s. This particular girl is a sweet example, presenting well with a nicely made costume, standing at a good height of 18.5" tall, with a plump face that just begs for love. Make her your own!
China shoulder head, with painted and molded features. Ice blue eyes, tapered black brows, and a closed mouth with blushed cheeks. Black molded hair in curls that frame the face. China arms and feet, with black painted and modeled short-heeled shoes and painted pink bows. Cloth body. Stands at 18.5" tall.
She wears a lovely organdy cotton dress, with a nice luscious collar and purple polka dots, with a velvet sash around the waist. Underneath, she wears a white cotton half slip with lace trim, and a pair of matching pantaloons.
CONDITION: Excellent. China head, arms, and legs are free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The facial modeling and painting is excellent, with vibrant colors to give her that realistic complexion. Only a tiny pepper to the left cheek. Arms seem to be newer replacements, and the cloth body seems to be a newer replacement. Feet are original and antique. Costume is good, with no issues, and presents well. Overall, a lovely lady!
