What a stunning face. Inspired by the French Steiner Bebe, this gorgeous girl is a blue ribbon example of the best of the best early German dolls which were specifically produced to emulate the popular French bebes of the day. Those luscious lips and wide blue eyes are utterly perfect~not to mention this fabulous aqua silk dress with copious insertion lace , such a delight to look at!
