She stands at 26” tall, with an open socket bisque head with painted and molded features: brown glass sleep eyes, painted feathered brows, painted upper and lower lashes, an open mouth with four upper teeth. She stands on her antique fully-jointed wood and composition body, and wears a bright blond mohair wig in a shoulder-length, curly style.
She wears a pale cream dress with pink feather stitching and white lace trimming, with a multi-layered skirt, and an overall cute presentation. A pattern sash goes around her waist, while underneath goes a white cotton antique chemise, half slip, and pantaloons, with white cotton long socks, and pink leather shoes.
MARKS: Germany HEINRICH HANDWERCK SIMON & HALBIG 4 1/2 [back of head, incised]
Heinrich Handwerck Germany [red stamp, back of torso]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality painting and modeling of features. She does have a firing line to the back of the head, coming from the bottom socket; this is a result of the manufacturing and firing process, and is not a result of damage after the fact. The glass eyes sleep well, and are aligned nicely in the head. The body is very good, with high-quality original finish and varnish, with sturdy stringing and nice overall modeling. The costume is good overall, with only minor and typical wear.
