She stands at 20” tall, with painted and molded features on a bisque shoulder head: brown glass eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and a dimpled chin, with lightly-blushed features, and pierced ears with earrings. She is on her original antique kidskin body, with gusset knees and thighs, bisque lower arms, and kidskin-over-wooden joint upper arms. She wears a short blond mohair wig in a curly style.
She wears a delightful white bonnet atop her head, with blue trim, and a cream lace-trimmed gown with pinstripe design, antique white cotton full slip, half slip, and pantaloons, along with cream socks and shoes.
MARKS: SH 1010 DEP [back top of head, incised; hidden beneath the kidskin; redone on the back of the plate]
CONDITION: Her bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features,; she has her original glass sleep eyes, but they no longer sleep and are held in place. Her kidskin body is good, with only a few patchwork reinforcements to the pelvis and legs; the kidskin at the upper arms has begun to pull down a bit, revealing the sturdy wooden joints underneath; this is a desirable feature, whereas many other kidskin dolls have simple stuffed arms that are sewn in to the body. The bisque lower arms are good, although the left hand’s index finger has been rebuilt. The body has some minor and typical age wear and discoloration spots. The costume is good, with minor and typical wear; the half slip does have a large area of soil wear to the back right portion. Overall, she’s a sweet doll, bound to make a great addition to your collection!
