China dolls occupy a rather unique niche in antique doll collections, with their refined elegance and simplicity, often prized for their earlier period in doll history. This particular china lady possesses a darling and sweet expression, with features of perhaps a younger lady, with chunkier, fuller cheeks, and a bright little smile. She stands at 21.5” tall, a perfect height for your cabinet shelf, has original china limbs, and is adorned in a wonderful costume. She’s a great example of a china doll, and is bound to please!

She stands at 21.5” tall, on a newer cloth body with original antique china lower arms and legs, with painted blue high-heeled shoes, with pink ribbon painted features. She has a china shoulder head, with a classic middle-part black molded hairstyle with curls. She has blue painted eyes, black tapered brows, and a closed mouth, with selective cheek blushing over an otherwise super-pale complexion.
She wears a white cotton dress with pink pattern print, with an adorning pin on the bodice, while underneath goes a cream wool slip and a pair of cream cotton antique pantaloons with lace trim.
CONDITION: Generally excellent. Her right lower leg does have some restoration near the inner knee area. Her china head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with nice modeling and painting of features. Her painting on the face is bright and colorful, offering a vivid complexion that stands out. Her cloth body seems to be a newer replacement, but her limbs are original and antique. Her costume is good, with only the most minor and typical age wear. Overall, she’s a great doll!
