MARKS: Floradora A 2 M [back of plate, incised]
CONDITION: Generally excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The glass eyes sleep well, and have good pupil alignment. The bisque face does have a few minor pepper marks and a rub or two. The body has some minor wear, with the left foot having a patch repair, and one of the bisque arms is a replacement. The costume is good, with only minor wear. Overall, this beautiful little girl would make a great addition to your cabinet collection!
