First is a 5.0” tall antique china lady, with painted and molded features: black tapered brows, blue eyes, and a molded black hairstyle. She has a cloth body, with original china feet and hands. She wears a white cotton flower-print dress, and original white cotton antique slip and pantaloons.
Next is a 4.25” tall antique china lady, with painted and molded features: black tapered brows, blue eyes, and a molded black hairstyle. She has a cloth body, with original china feet. She wears a dark brown cotton dress and an antique white cotton half slip underneath.
Finally is a 3.75” tall antique china lady, with painted and molded features: black tapered brows, blue eyes, and a molded black hairstyle. She has a fully-cloth body, and wears a white cotton flower print skirt, white cotton chemise, and white cotton antique pantaloons and slip underneath.
MARKS: -The smallest, 3.75” doll has a 12 on the back of the plate-
CONDITION: Generally excellent. All dolls are free of hairlines, cracks, or restoration to their china. All dolls do have some minor and typical age wear, such as a few pepper spots, or some rubs to the black paint of the hair. The cloth bodies have minor and typical age wear, with discoloration. The same goes for the costumes, which, aside from minor age wear, have held up well and are in good condition. Please be aware that antique china dolls of such a small size tend to have details that are not quite as precise as larger sizes; this is not an issue or quality, merely a difference in manufacturing process. Overall, this is a great trio!
*Please note that the price shown for this doll was calculated by factoring in the doll’s condition carefully. The doll’s condition is described fully in the "Condition" paragraph above. Any damage or flaws are carefully evaluated as to the manner in which they may reduce the retail value of this item. Unless there is some major issue we overlooked in the condition report, we decline to entertain any proposals for price reductions due to a less than perfect condition report. Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
