She has a bisque socket head, with blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered flyaway brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and a dimpled chin. She stands at 26.5” tall, on her original walking, crying body. She wears a fluffy blond mohair wig in a long curly style.
She wears a white cotton antique open lace dress, with long sleeves, a pink ribbon around the waist, and underneath goes a white cotton antique full slip, a half slip, and white cotton pantaloons, along with simple white socks and pink leather shoes.
MARKS: Armand Marseille Germany 390 A 9 M [back of head, incised]
Made in Germany [back of tors, stamp; also includes a circular patent stamp mark]
CONDITION: The bisque head is absolutely free of cracks, chips, restoration or hairlines. The eyes are aligned well in the head; they sleep well. There are some very tiny rubs here and there, and some minor dirt specks to the forehead. The body has its original finish, and has most of the original varnish, without any major flaking or chipping. The walking mechanism is not as reliable as it could be; moving the left leg slowly rotates the head, while the arms move independent of the legs; the arm shoulder joints are a little stiff. The cryer mechanism no longer works.
The costume is good, with only minor and typical wear for antique attire. The wig is a fluffy, odor-free wig, with a nice supple silhouette.
