MARKS: 14 Germany 99 DEP HANDWERCK 54 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Excellent. She has gorgeous, pale bisque with expert and delicate painting of features, crisp and deep modeling of an absolutely beautiful face, pleasant, subtle color. The bisque head is absolutely free of cracks, chips, restoration or hairlines. The glass eyes sparkle and are with great pupil alignment; the eyes sleep well. There is a very minor rubbing flake to the right ear piercing.
The wood & composition body is great, and has its shiny original finish, and is in very good overall condition, with only the most minor of age wear here and there. The right hand is a slightly-larger replacement. The neck socket and toe-tips of the left foot have some very minor touchups. Other than this, she's a fabulous girl! The costume is great overall, with some minor areas of wear. The wig is supple and full, with a great color and texture. Overall, this girl is in great condition, and you can buy her with confidence!
