She stands at 17” tall, with a bisque shoulder head, with painted and molded features: pale blue paperweight set eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, and a closed molded mouth, with pierced ears with earrings. She stands on her original antique kidskin body, with gusset joints, and a pair of bisque lower arms. She wears a high-quality blond human hair wig with thick curls.
She wears a beautiful antique cotton and lace bonnet, along with a matching ensemble in a pale pink with lace trim, consisting of a lace-trimmed dress, with matching full slip underneath with net lace skirt, and a matching net lace half slip; underneath also goes a white cotton antique full slip, sleeveless, and a pair of matching antique white cotton pantaloons. She wears a pair of white waffle-knit socks, and a pair of white leather shoes.
MARKS: S6H 940 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Her bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The blue paperweight eyes have good pupil alignment, while the painting and detailing to the bisque is crisp and colorful. The body is excellent, with only some minor areas of patchwork reinforcement; overall, the kidskin is a nice crisp white, with only minor age wear. The pointer finger on the right bisque lowe arm is indeed chipped, but other than this, the hands are good. The costume is great, with minor to moderate wear (one or two of the pieces have some very minor age stains, or a hole or two); this is to be expected with antique doll clothing, but overall, the costume is great and presents well!

Any damage or flaws are carefully evaluated as to the manner in which they may reduce the retail value of this item.
