CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with high-quality painting and modeling of features. The glass eyes sleep well, and have good pupil alignment. The body appears to have repainted arms and legs, with the torso retaining the original finish and varnish. There are some slight touchups to the neck socket of the torso. The stringing is pretty good.Please be aware that minor flaking and wear to the composition and varnish is to be expected with the majority of these antique doll bodies! The costume is good, with only minor and typical wear; the dress and bonnet are two wonderful antique pieces, with excellent presentation. The skin wig is lovely, with a good sturdy structure, and essentially no sparseness to the mohair. Overall, she’s a great doll!
