She has a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: big blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, very thick tapered brown brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. She stands at 8.5” tall on a 5-piece toddler body, with bent arms and straight legs. She wears a long brown human hair wig.
She wears a white cotton dress, which is newly made with antique fabric, and decorated with whitework Broderie Anglaise along the scalloped edges of the hem and sleeves, and a pink silk sash. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton full slip, with attached net half slip, and a pair of antique white cotton lace-trimmed pantaloons. On her feet are modern white leather shoes. On her head is a crocheted hat with a white satin ribbon and a spray of pink and blue silk flowers.
MARKS: 1909 / 15/0 [incised, back of head]; 60.94a [painted, back of right thigh]
CONDITION: There are no issues with the bisque, which has high-quality modeling and painting of features, with no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The glass eyes sleep well. The body is in good condition, with only the most minor wear. The costume is good, with only minor wear; this is to be expected with antique and vintage doll clothing, but overall, the costume is great 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. Unless there is some major issue we overlooked in the condition report, we decline to entertain any proposals for price reductions due to a less than perfect condition report. Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
