She stands at 18” tall, with a bisque socket head, with molded and painted features: blue glass set eyes, with painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with four upper square-cut teeth. She stands on her original antique composition French body, fully-jointed, with a mechanism in the back (no longer functional). She wears a high-quality French human hair wig with banana curls and bangs.
She wears a burgundy cotton Bebe-style dress with white lace trim, pleated skirt, and long sleeves, with an antique white cotton lace-trimmed bonnet atop her head. Underneath goes a white cotton antique full slip and matching onesie, with black cotton socks and black leather shoes.
MARKS: SFBJ 60 PARIS 1 1/2 [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 glass eyes have good pupil alignment but are now set, while the painting and detailing to the bisque is crisp and colorful. The body is good, with minor to moderate age wear to the finish; the right upper leg has regions where the surface finish has rubbed off, and there are some areas of wear and possible paint touchup to the hands. This level of wear is not unexpected with these types of French bodies=. The costume is great, with only minor and typical wear; this is to be expected with antique doll clothing, but overall, the costume is great and presents well!
