Pressed Bisque socket head on a bisque shoulder-plate with Auguste Alexander Dehors neck articulation permitting the head to take coquettish poses by tilting from side to side and up and down as opposed to the simple swivel movement, on her original gusset jointed kidskin lady body bisque hands. Original blue cobalt eyes with desirable extremely lined eye cuts, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered arching brows, closed somewhat smiling mouth with shading and accents, beautiful blond mohair wig. The head circumference is just shy of 5 inches.
MARKS : May be hidden under the kid
CONDITION : Generally excellent. Her bisque is fine, with a very creamy quality, excellent glow, beautiful coloring, and those blue eyes just stand out so nicely against her pale skin. She has a fine, pale quality pressed bisque head with a very beautiful face, expert and delicate painting of attractive features and crisp modeling of demure lady’s face. The original kidskin body is in sturdy condition, but with age wear and discoloration and both hands are antique replacements. There are some stitched repairs to the knees. The dress does show some areas of stress and the straw hat has been mended. Overall she is a sweet delight!
