She stands at 23.5” tall, with a bisque shoulder head, with a slightly-turned head mold, a particularly-desirable feature of the otherwise static shoulder head dolls. She has bright blue paperweight eyes, with painted upper and lower lashes, thick and dark feathered brows, and an open mouth with square-cut upper teeth. She is on her kidskin antique body, with rivet-jointed knees and thighs, and has fully-jointed wood and composition arms, a unique feature of kidskin body dolls. She wears a blond short mohair wig in a curly style. She wears a nice pearl necklace.
She wears a high-quality antique white cotton dress, with lace trim and rose pink insertion ribbon, with long sleeves. Underneath goes a white cotton antique full slip, sleeveless, with a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons with an elastic band. She wears cotton socks and black oilcloth shoes.
MARKS: K [back top of head, incised]
CONDITION: Her bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features, with beautiful pale blue paperweight eyes. She has nice square-cut upper teeth, which are a desirable feature. Her kidskin body does have some minor and typical age wear, with slight discoloration and some wear and tear to the attachment point of the shoulder plate. The composition arms are good, with great and tight stringing, and good overall finish and paint. The costume is good, with only minor and typical age wear.
