She has a bisque shoulder head with expert modeling and crisp detailing. Her original set blue glass spiral eyes are framed by painted upper & lower lashes and thick brown multistroke brows. She has a slightly open mouth with two upper teeth, and a dimpled chin. She wears a chocolate brown mohair wig in a curly style, and comes with her original light brown mohair wig with an attached pate. She stands at 14” tall on her antique gusseted kidskin body with bisque lower arms.
This girl wears her original sweet white cotton dress, with lace at the collar, along with a white cotton ruffle, lace trim at the sleeves and along the ruffle, and whitework featherstitching on the skirt and adorning the lace at the collar and sleeves. Underneath, she wears her original matching lace-trimmed white cotton underwear set of a half slip and a onesie. On her feet, she wears white socks and black shoes with gold-tone detailing. Her outfit is finished off with a coral pink sash at her waist and a matching coral pink bow in her hair.
MARKS: 3 [kidskin collarette may be hiding other marks]
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. The bisque shoulderhead is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, but does have a small rub on the right cheek, a small wig pull on the right side near the top of the head, and some small inherent flaws. Her plaster pate is still attached to her head. The painting is excellent and the modeling is crisp and detailed. Her bisque arms have some inherent marks, and the left thumb is chipped. The antique kidskin body is in good condition. All gusset joints on the legs have been patched, as well as the left arm. The rest of the kidskin has some minor age-related wear.
