She has painted lower lashes, feathered molded brown brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. She has pierced ears, and is topped with a blond mohair wig, in a short curly style. She is on her original antique wood & composition body, fully-jointed, standing at 16.5” tall.
She wears a pale mauve Bebe-style dress, with white lace, and front pinned-bows down the bodice. Underneath goes a set of white cotton underwear, with a full slip and onesie, both lace-trimmed. She wears cotton antique long socks, and brown leather shoes of high quality.
MARKS: DEP 6 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Excellent! The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, and bears top-quality modeling and painting of features, characteristic of the ubiquitous Simon & Halbig, who manufactured the head. The glass eyes sleep well, on the original rocker, with nice pupil alignment. The wood & composition body has its original paint and varnish finish, with good stringing for posing. There is only the most minor and typical age wear to the body, which is not unexpected for a doll of her age. The costume is very good; the dress is a top-quality newer make, in the French Bebe style. The underwear is good, with only minor wear. The wig is soft and supple. Overall, she’s a fabulous doll in top-quality antique condition!
