The weather may be heating up, but this precious snow maiden is ready to bring back a crisp winter breeze! The shoulderhead made by Kestner she has big original deep brown sleep eyes and cheeks turned pink by the wind. Her golden curls brush the collar of her warm velvet dress with a creamy lace bodice panel and brown trim. A soft real fur brown muff hangs around her neck, ready to warm her little hands. Forget the air conditioning- keep cool with this wintry darling! We have here a lovely turned-shoulderhead girl by Kestner but on a replaced contemporaneous antique body by Armand Marseille with a paper label marked "Floradora", standing at 20.5" tall. She has a creamy bisque face, with brown sleep eyes, and a kidskin body with pin joints and bisque hands. The chest is labeled, and she is adorned in a lovely dark dress with an alluring presentation, complete with a muff accessory, topped with a golden curly wig.
