She has a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: blue glass sleep eyes on the original rocker, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. She has pierced ears, which are decorated with cute earrings. She is on a wood & composition body, fully-jointed, standing at 19” tall. She wears a brown human hair wig with bangs and banana curls.
She wears a white and pink antique cotton dress, with white lace trim, with long sleeves. An antique plum bonnet sits atop her head, while underneath she wears a white cotton antique half slip, and a matching pair of lace-trimmed antique pantaloons. White cotton socks adorn her feet, along with a pair of antique red leather old shoes.
MARKS: S&H 1009 DEP [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The face has high quality modeling and painting of features, with glass sleep eyes that sleep well, with good straight pupil alignment. There is a tiny bit of surface flaking to the left ear piercing, but this is not a big deal. The wood & composition body has minor to moderate wear, with flaking and rubbing off of the surface composition and finish, along with a few areas of touchup, including the hands and the feet. The torso and limbs still retain much of the original finish and varnish, however. The costume is good, with only minor and typical wear; the shoes, however, as they are old leather, do have some moderate wear, and some mending to the shoes. The wig is soft and supple, with a nice full look.
*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.
