CONDITION: There are no issues with the bisque, which has high-quality modeling and painting of features, with no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The glass eyes have good pupil alignment, while the painting and detailing to the bisque is crisp and colorful. The body is in moderate condition, with age wear and lots of touchups. These bodies are not known for their particularly top-quality. The costume is goodt, with only minor wear; this is to be expected with antique and vintage doll clothing, but overall, the costume is great and presents well!
