How many times has little miss sighed over the china figurines in the cabinet? How many times has she wished to hold them and examine their ethereal perfection more closely? Every dear wish has led to this moment, when Papa puts back the lid of the box and a lovely lady comes into view. Oh! What rapture! Nestled in her tissue-paper, she smiles up beatifically with real glass eyes in her oval moon face, framed by smooth, sculpted blond curls. Her antique pink silk dress only adds to the pastel fantasy, with its froth of lace insertion and trim. A pink sculpted headband and matching earrings match both her gown and her cheeks so charmingly. At last, the lofty ladies of the china cabinet have become real!
This fine, elegant lady is here to stay! She's got a sweet parian shoulder head, with bright blue paperweight eyes, and a delicate expression with a closed mouth, with a pale face with blushed cheeks. She stands at 17" tall, on her original cloth body with parian lower arms. She's adorned in a lovely antique costume, with a pink silk lace-trimmed ensemble that is just stunning. She does have some issues to the parian head, so she is being offered for an incredible price! Add this beauty to your collection!

CONDITION: The back portion of the shoulder plate is restored, leaving a slight discoloration; however, it is not immediately noticeable, and does not detract from her beauty. It looks like the painting of the black string holding the pendant on her neck has be redone as a result. The face is lovely, and free of restoration; the left eye does have a subtle fissure, however. She has a few minor pepper spots on the face, but they are not noticeable. The rest of the head and modeling are free of any damage, cracks, chips, or restoration. The cloth body is antique and original, and is in good shape, although there has been some reinforcement to the legs below the knees.
