She stands at 22” tall, with a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: brown glass sleep eyes, feathered flyaway brown brows, painted upper and lower lashes, an open mouth with four upper teeth. She is on her original antique wood and composition body, fully-jointed, with the original finish. She wears a golden blond mohair wig in a short, curly style.
She wears an antique white cotton dress, with lace trim and long sleeves, a pink silk bow in her hair, an antique white cotton full slip with lace trim and tucking, and a pair of white cotton antique pantaloons. White socks and cream leather shoes adorn her feet.

CONDITION: Her bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The painting and detailing to the bisque is crisp and colorful. The glass eyes sleep well; they have a tiny bit of misalignment on the rocker, but this is a minor detail. The body has minor to moderate wear, with areas of repaint and touchup, particularly to the fingers and some of the toes; both feet have had some toes rebuilt, while the left middle finger has been reattached. The costume is great, with minor to moderate wear; this is to be expected with antique and vintage doll clothing, but overall, the costume is great and presents well!
*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.
