Condition: Overall, very good! 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 some minor isolated peppers/specks here and there to the bisque, but these aren't very noticeable. The glass eyes sleep well, but there is some wear to the upper wax lids. The kidskin body has moderate wear, but is structurally strong and sturdy. The top portion of the torso has been reinforced with a large cream leather patch. The back of the kidskin by the neckline has some peeling and wear. The forearms have some touchup, and the hands are repainted. The costume is good overall, and presents well, in a clean damage-free condition. Only some minor wear to the silk bonnet.
