She has a parian bisque shoulder head, with painted and molded features, blue eyes, brown tapered single-stroke brows, and a closed mouth, with gentle blushing over an overall pale complexion. She has blond curly-molded hair, with a blue painted bow and unusual double head-band, along with exposed ears with earrings. She stands at 23” tall, on her original antique cloth body, with leather arms with individual fingers.
She wears a maroon velvet gown, with black crocheted lace collar and sleeve trim, with a vintage Victorian revival brooch on the chest, and a black silk ribbon sash. Underneath goes a cream cotton antique half slip, with open-work embroidery. Black leather boots adorn her feet, with laces.
CONDITION: Generally excellent overall. The tinted bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, and bears top-quality, crisp (first out of the mold) modeling and painting of features. The cloth body does have some minor to moderate age wear, with some soiling. The leather arms have a moderate level of wear, and are extremely delicate; it is rare to find leather arms like these on these parian dolls, especially arms that are original and antique. There is some weakening of the stitched seams on the arms, with some opening at the seams, revealing the horsehair stuffing underneath. All of the fingers are present on each hand. Treat this lady well and with care, and she should be perfectly fine! The costume is great overall, with no major issues, with only the most minor and expected age wear, particularly to the antique slip and the leather shoes.
