She has a bisque socket head, with bright blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, and feathered brown brows. She has an open mouth with the characteristic lower lip mark typical of all "SANTA" dolls. She has four upper teeth, with a pale overall complexion and subtle selective blushing. She has pierced ears, and wears a golden blond mohair wig in a short, curly style. She also comes with her brown original antique wig in brown mohair. She stands at 24" tall on her original antique wood & composition body, fully-jointed.
Her head is bedecked with an antique white cotton and silk bonnet with embroidery details and a scallop-edge, with pink ribbon ties. She wears an antique dress, in white and pale yellow, with lace trim and long sleeves. Underneath goes an antique white cotton and rayon full slip, sleeveless, with lace trim to the skirt, along with a matching pair of white pantaloons. Simple white cotton socks adorn her feet, with a pair of fancy reproduction French leather shoes. On her chest is a sweet antique gold filled bar pin.
MARKS: S&H 1249 DEP 11 1/2 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Excellent! The bisque head is in good condition, and is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Top-quality painting and modeling of features. The original high quality antique body is great, with its shiny original finish, and good sturdy stringing. The left shoulder ball joint seems to be a smaller replacement. There is only some minor wear to the joints, typical for these dolls, and nothing unusual or major. The antique costume is great, with wonderful presentation, with only the most minor age wear. Overall, this is a fabulous girl, bound to please!
