Chin lady half doll, 3" tall from the waist up. Painted and molded features, with a done up hairstyle and clasped hands, in a blue dress with burgundy front. Faded blue silk skirt, with cream lace tie wrapped around a carved wooden handle. A thin black leather strap leads into a real feather duster at the bottom, for an overall approximate length of 14".
NOTE: The bebe shown in some of the photos is NOT offered in this listing; this listing is only for the half doll duster. The bebe is shown for scale, and to show how this piece would look as an accessory.
Marks: -None visible-
Condition: Excellent. The china is lovely, and free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Nice modeling and painting of features, giving a nice representation of a lady. Painting is truly lovely and colorful. She does have a few peppers and paint specks here and there, a common minor issue with smaller china dolls. The silk skirt and cream wrapping does have some fraying and wear. The feather duster is good, with most of the feathers intact. Overall, this is a lovely piece!
