She stands at 28” tall, with a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. She has a lovely pale complexion with selectively-blushed features, and is on a beautiful antique wood and composition fully-jointed body. She wears a ginger red wig in mohair, in a shoulder-length curly style.
She wears a white cotton gown with embroidered details, and pale blue insertion ribbon, and long sleeves. Blue bows decorate her hair, while underneath goes a white cotton antique half slip and matching pantaloons, with white cotton socks and black felt shoes.
MARKS: L ½ made in Germany 15 ½ JDK 214 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: The bisque is good, with high quality modeling and painting of features, and no hairlines, cracks, or chips. She has a large wig pull to the back top of the head; this does not affect the integrity of the bisque, and is typical. The glass eyes sleep well and have good pupil alignment. The wood and composition body has some minor and typical age wear, but has most of its original finish and paint, with good sturdy stringing, and a pleasant overall look. The wig is soft and supple, and the costume has only the most minor and typical age wear. Overall, a lovely doll!
