She stands at 24.5” tall, on her original wood & composition fully-jointed body, with a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, open mouth with four upper teeth, feathered brown brows, and pierced ears. She wears a soft ginger red mohair wig.
She wears a white cotton antique dress, a white cotton full slip, a white cotton pair of pantaloons, cream socks, and pink oilcloth shoes, with a salmon ribbon around the waist.
MARKS: 109 - 133 /4 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Excellent -- near to no issues! Her bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The blue glass eyes sleep well, and have good pupil alignment, while the painting and detailing is crisp and colorful. The body is pretty good, with most of the original finish and varnish. There are some sites of wear to the composition, and some areas of touchup: the left thigh has been reglued to the ball socket, and the toes on both feet have been repainted and touched up. The fingers on both hands are good. The costume is good overall, with no major issues.
Please be reminded that, as with the majority of antique dolls, this doll has some minor signs of age wear, that are to be expected with dolls of such old age.
*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.

Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
