Condition: Generally Excellent. This girl has a beautiful bisque head that is free of hairlines, cracks, or restoration, and has excellent modeling, offering a beautiful dolly face that truly is alluring. She does have a minor factory-inherent mold flaw to the forehead, where the paint has rubbed slightly. This is not damage that the doll sustained after production and distribution, and should not affect her value. It is hidden by her wig. The glass eyes sleep well. The body has its all original finish, and is well-strung, with only some slight age wear; Overall, the body is very good, with nice presentation. Wig is soft and supple, and in great condition. The costume is good overall, with no issues.
