Creamy and smooth bisque socket head, with an open mouth with six upper teeth. Big blue glass sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, and painted brows. Lovely brown human hair wig, in a shoulder length curly style. She’s on her original antique wood & composition body, standing at 22” tall. Good stringing.
She wears a blue bonnet with lace underlay atop her head. A white antique cotton dress adorns her, with eyelet embroidery and tucking to the bodice. White cotton antique half slip with eyelet lace and tucking, and a pair of underwear with back button closure. White cotton socks and black leather vintage shoes.
MARKS: Limoges FRANCE 10 [incised, back of head]
CONDITION: Excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Modeling is crisp and the painting is sharp and delicate, indicative of particular care by the manufacturers. The face is clean and has that unmistakable Limoges style. The blue glass eyes sleep well, and sit nicely in the head, with great pupil alignment. Some very minor, barely noticeable paint specks near the nose, but this is a common occurence for bisque heads with that rosy tint, used by many French manufacturers. Wood and composition body is original, with its original finish; the forearms and hands are repainted. Some stiffness here and there to the forearms and wrists. Some wear to the joints. Costume is good, with no real issues. Overall, she's great!
