The classic Armand Marseille Summer's bounty sweeps the fields, ripening wheat to a gentle gold and washing it still more golden in the setting sun. This Armand Marseille girl wanders down the dusty road, empty picnic hamper on her arm. She's so proud to have kept her antique white frock clean, with its pink insertion ribbon sash, lace trim, and eyelet embroidery, that she feels no shame in dawdling on the hillside. Her rich brown sleep eyes glow in the last sunbeams and an evening breeze stirs her original sandy-brown hair. She'll be home in time for supper, but for now...for now the wind holds a breath of adventure, and she must imagine following it!
The AM 390 is a staple in all German doll collector homes, offering a familiar and lovable face that you'll want to return to again and again. This particular 390n girl stands at 20" tall, in an original antique wig, and in a cute antique dress that is bound to please. Make her yours now!
