She stands at 18” tall, on her original antique cloth body, with wooden carved lower arms and feet, with black painted booties. She has a wax over paper mache shoulderhead, in the pumpkin head style, with rare molded red hat with black feather detail. She has her original black-iris glass eyes, with a closed mouth, and molded blond curls.
She wears a nicely-constructed two-piece ensemble, in pink plaid, with other colors, with black trim and long sleeves. Underneath goes a white cotton antique chemise, half slip, and pantaloons, with lace trim.
CONDITION: The head has only the most minor crazing in the wax, typical of these early wax dolls; in fact, all things considered, she has held up very well over the years. She does have some minor touchup to the mouth and features, but otherwise is very good. Her glass eyes are good with no issues. Her cloth body is original, and in a clean cream, with nice condition to the wooden limbs, with only minor expected wear, such as surface flaking and some rubs. The costume is good, with minor and typical wear, particularly to the antique pieces. Overall, this is a lovely doll!
