She stands at 29” tall, with a china shoulder head, with painted and molded features: blue painted eyes, tapered brows, a closed "cupid's bow" mouth, blushed cheeks, and black painted and molded hair. She stands on her original cloth body with later-added vintage kidskin lower arms.
She wears a very long patterned antique white cotton dress with a black velvet sash. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton full slip and half slip, both with tucks at the hem, and newer off-white nylon pantaloons with lace trim. On her feet, she wears antique white socks and newer black shoes.
CONDITION: Her china head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The painting and detailing to the china is crisp and colorful, but there her painted hair has some rubs. The cloth body is in wonderful condition, with a nice clean surface, and is original with the exception of her arms. Her arms have been replaced with vintage kidskin arms. The costume is in excellent condition and presents well!
*Please note that the price shown for this doll was calculated by factoring in the doll’s condition carefully. The doll’s condition is described fully in the "Condition" paragraph above. Any damage or flaws are carefully evaluated as to the manner in which they may reduce the retail value of this item.
