Adelina Patti is ready to take the stage in your collection, wowing all your other dolls and doll-loving friends with her voice! The exceptionally-skilled soprano was in high demand during her time in the late 1800s, to the early 1900s. Along with her contemporaries like Jenny Lind, she made an exceptional addition to the family of specially-modeled china dolls. This particular lady stands at 17.5" tall, with a nicely-molded china head and face, with black hair in a middle part with back and side curls. She's on her antique cloth body, with china limbs. Adorned in a cream antique cotton costume, she is bound to look lovely in your collection cabinet. Usually this model of china lady can demand a price of up to 1200, but this particular lady has some minor issues to the face china, so we are offering her here for an incredible price! You cannot pass up this girl.

CONDITION: She does have some rubs and peppers to the face, and some rubs to the back of the hair/head. It is not a super big deal, but is why we are offering her at such an incredible price. Other than that, she doesn't have any real issues! Her china head is free of any other damage such as hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Modeling and painting is crisp and vibrant, offering a unique china lady face is set apart from the rest. Her cloth body is in good overall condition, with only some minor age wear and some reinforcing stitching near the pelvis. The china limbs are good without any damage or issues; the paint on the lower legs has held up beautifully over the years, and present well. The costume is antique, and looks great for an antique set of clothes. Overall, this is a lovely lady!
