She has a bisque socket head with painted and molded features: blue glass sleep eyes, painted lower lashes, real upper lashes, and an open mouth with four upper teeth, and a dimpled chin. She has feathered molded brown brows, and stands at 18” tall on an antique wood and composition fully-jointed body, with the original finish. She wears a newer, high-quality wig in a light brown, with curls, and also comes with her dark blond original antique wig.
She wears an antique white cotton dress, with pink ribbon cuffs, in a simple, cute design. Underneath goes an antique white cotton full slip, and a matching pair of antique lace-trimmed pantaloons. Cream socks and cream leather shoes adorn her feet. A lovely little gold-filled pin decorates the bodice of her dress.
MARKS: made in Germany 174 B ½ 6 ½ [back of head, incised]
Germany 2 [back of torso, red stamp]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The glass eyes sleep well, and are aligned nicely in the head. The antique wood and composition body is mostly good, with high-quality original finish, and tight stringing, although she does have some wear to the wrist joints of the hands, and the left forearm has a subtle split crack through the wood. Overall, though, the body is very good. The costume has held up well over the years, with only minor and typical wear. The wigs are good, with no smoke odors.
