MARKS: DEP 15
CONDITION: There is a very faint hairline (probably there from the day she was born) at the back of the head (see photo). Also a faint linear rub to the right cheek. Otherwise, she has good quality smooth bisque with pleasant coloring, delicate painting of features. Crisp modeling of the very pretty dolly face. The antique fabulous paperweight eyes are replace, but they are what makes this doll incredible. The original chunky French body in very good condition with the original finish. Touch-ups to the forearms and hands are well done and one finger on the right hand re-glued. These are minor issues that affect dolls when they are over 100 years old. What a charming French girl. A veritable Sweetheart! LBK-6-16-2017
