Bonnet-head girls are a delightful addition to any collection, especially when they are as charming as this one! She stands at 18” tall, with a bright pale parian head, with painted and molded features, making for an adorable chunky-face. She’s on her original body with original limbs, in an unusual larger size, and is adorned in a sweet pale pink dress and antique underthings. It is this larger size that makes this bonnet head girl so desirable, as the more commonly-found ones tend to be smaller. She’s in a great overall condition, and is bound to make you smile! Add to your collection this beauty, today!

She has a parian bisque shoulderhead, with a painted orange bonnet head, with white ruffled molded interior, and molded and painted blue bow around the neck. She has painted and molded features, with blue painted eyes, brown tapered brows, and a closed petite mouth with pink lips, with rosy cheeks. She has molded and painted blond hair with bangs. She stands at 18” tall, on her original cloth antique body, with original parian lower arms and feet, the latter with black painted high-heeled shoes, and green painted stocking ribbons.
She wears a pink and white print cotton vintage dress, with scattered flower print, with lace trim to the collar and blue insertion ribbon. Underneath goes an antique white cotton full slip, and a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons.
MARKS: 4- 150 [back of plate, incised]
3 [backs of arms, incised, by the elbows]
CONDITION: Generally-excellent overall. The parian head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, and has high-quality modeling and painting of features, making for a colorful and cute presentation. There are a few tiny, sparse pepper spots, but these are not uncommon for parian ladies such as she. The parian limbs are good as well, with only some slight typical age wear, although it seems that there’s a tiny chip to the tip of the right foot. The cloth body is original, but has been reinforced with patchwork repair to strengthen it and ensure that this girl lasts! Her costume is good as well, with only the most minor and typical of age wear, all to be expected with similar doll garments. Overall, she’s a fabulous girl, bound to please!
