MARKS: UNIS 71 FRANCE 149 301 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: The neck socket of the body does have a crack around the circumference (see photo). The right pinky has been reconstructed. The costume is mostly pinned onto the doll; its perfect customized fit makes it a difficult task to remove, so we suggest you keep the costume on. The bisque head is absolutely free of cracks, chips, restoration or hairlines. The eyes are aligned well in the head, and sleep well. The wood and composition body is mostly good, with only minor and expected wear. The costume is great overall, with only some minor areas of wear. Overall, she's a beautiful girl you cannot deny!
