22.5” Lovely Original Brown-Eyed Antique China Lady Doll circa 1890 Thanks DM
Like a Greek statue, this china lady has a deep serenity and grace to her moon-pale visage. Her rosy cheeks and brown eyes shine as brightly as the day they were painted, framed by sleek black curls. She's elegant and lovely in an antique tan and white checked cotton gown with floral accents. Ornament your home with this stunning work of art!
What a lovely china lady doll! Dressed in an antique ensemble and lovely matching modern shoes, she makes such an impression! She has a lovely hairstyle featuring rolled curls and shorter curls on her forehead resembling bangs. The accenting tan colors in her original costume highlight her lovely brown eyes.
She has a china shoulder-head on a cloth body with leather arms. Her black hair is molded finely into two rolls of barrel curls all the way around the head. Her tapered brows frame her brown painted eyes. Nicely blushed cheeks complement the pale china and matches the painting of her closed mouth, which almost seems to be smiling at you.
Her costume consists of her antique cream and tan checked cotton dress with floral accents and lovely gathering in the front panel. Her antique white cotton full slip has a lovely eyelet edging and a fit and flare styling to the skirt portion. Her white cotton pantaloons are edged in eyelet lace and her costume is completed by her white socks and modern cream colored shoes.
Condition: Very Good. Her china head is completely free of damage. She has some light and typical rubbing to the paint on the hair in the back and some teeny pepper spots on her plate and nose. The body does show signs of age wear and the stuffing has settled in the body slightly unevenly, but this is not noticeable when she’s dressed. Her kidskin arms are worn, and have been patched and reattached. The original costume has been repaired over time (please examine all photos). As was done in the day, her costume is fastened partially using pins. Inspect the photos closely! Overall, she's a beautiful doll with great presentation. If your collection is hankering for a brown-eyed antique china doll, you have found her! Not that many antique china dolls today are found on replaced bodies, so though her body does have some issues, most connoisseurs prefer finding a china doll with her original body to accepting a replacement body.
