She has a bisque shoulder-head, with a turned-head style of modeling, with painted and molded features. She has her original blue paperweight eyes, with painted upper and lower lashes, and feathered brown brows. She has a delicate closed mouth, with pink lips, with blushed cheeks over an overall pale complexion. She wears a brown soft mohair wig in a short, curly style. She is on her original antique kidskin body, with pin-jointed thighs and knees, with bisque lower arms. She stands at 21” tall. She even comes with her original antique wig, in a dark brown human hair.
She wears a red and black ensemble, with a fitted top with antique pin on the bodice, and a bustled-skirt with nice full pleated bottom trim. A matching hat sits atop her head (not currently shown in the photos; will be updated soon!) Underneath goes a white cotton antique full slip and matching pair of pantaloons, along with a pair of black cotton knit socks, and burgundy leather shoes.
CONDITION: Generally excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with high quality painting and molding of features. The right eye does have a tiny surface scratch to the pupil, but this is not very noticeable. The kidskin body is good overall, although it does have some typical minor to moderate age wear, with some discoloration and patchwork reinforcement, particularly at the shoulders. The bisque hands are good, with all fingers intact. The costume is great overall, with only minor and typical of age wear. Overall, this is a fantastic doll in great condition, and bound to please!
