She stands at 27” tall, with a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: blue glass flirty eyes, with sleeping tin lids, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered flyaway brown brows, and an open mouth with two upper teeth, with a highly-active tremble tongue. She stands on her original antique composition bent-limb baby body, and wears a nice full light brown mohair wig in a short, style.
She wears a cream and rose pink knit bonnet, with pink ribbon ties, and a white cotton organdy baby gown, with a super-long length, with open embroidery at the bottom, and upon the bodice and fluffy sleeves. Underneath goes a white cotton antique sleeveless full slip, with a fully-buttonable back, and trim to the bottom, as well as a white cotton antique onesie.
MARKS: Heubach Koppelsdorf 342.12 Germany [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Generally excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The glass eyes flirty well, and move from side to side with tilts of the head. The tin lids work well, and come all the way down. The composition body has a fully-repainted and re-varnished torso, with some of the repaint extending to the joints of the attached limbs, and there are touchups and slight repairs to the hands and feet. Please see the photos, which should show the details of the body well. The costume is great, in excellent condition, with fully-working button closures for some of the pieces. The wig is soft and supple. Overall, this is a beautiful doll!
*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.
