She has a bisque shoulderhead, with blue glass sleep eyes, with painted upper and lower lashes, real upper lashes, feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. She has selective blushing over an overall pale complexion. She wears a soft red mohair wig, in a short, semi-curly style, with a side part. She stands at 18.5” tall, on her original antique kidskin body, with front stamp, reading “Jubilee Kid Doll”. The body has exceptional original wood & composition fully-jointed arms and lower legs, an amazing feature.
She wears two antique white cotton half slips, both with bountiful lace trim, along with a white cotton antique full onesie, with lace trim and details, along with a white coton bonnet. The onesie and outer slip work well to produce a two-piece ensemble that is as stunning as any dress! She has a pink sash around her waist, and has white socks and white faux leather shoes adorning her feet.

CONDITION: Excellent! The doll’s bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. She does have two tiny rubs to the left brow, just above the eyebrow, but these are minor and not noticeable. The glass eyes are original and sleep well, with good pupil alignment within the head. The kidskin body has held up beautifully over the years, with only minor age wear, with barely any discoloration. The original “Jubilee” stamp on the chest is a great feature, as are the original wood & composition arms and legs; the finish is bright and clean, with good, tight joints for posing. It should be noted that the doll’s arms are built in such a way so that you can only raise both at the same time; you cannot raise one while keeping the other lowered. The wig is soft and clean, with no odors, while the costume is good, with only minor and typical wear; the onesie has some slight repairs. Overall, this is a fabulous doll!
