She stands at 24” tall, on a jointed antique wood and composition body, with straight wrists. She wears a blond mohair wig in a shoulder-length, curly style.
She wears a bright pale blue bonnet atop her head, with swiss dotting embroidery, and white lace trim. She wears a powder blue ensemble, with white lace trim, in two pieces: a full-sleeve frock top, and a sleeveless matching dress underneath. Underneath goes a white cotton full slip with cotton skirt and knit sleeveless top, and a white cotton lace-trimmed onesie with multiple button closures. She wears black socks and black and brown leather shoes.
MARKS: 273 Dep 14 [back of head, incised]
[There is a faded blue circular stamp on the back of the torso]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top quality modeling and painting of features. The brown glass eyes are aligned straight in the head and sleep well. The wood and composition body is tightly strung, with much of the original finish. The body does have some areas of touchup and repaint, particularly to the joints, and there has been some repaint and touchup to the hands. The forearms/hands are straight-wrists, and one of them may be an appropriately-sized replacement. The wig has a fluffy body, with no smokey odors, and bears a pleasant silhouette. The costume is in great condition, with only minor and typical age wear. Overall, she’s a beautiful doll, having held up very well over the years.
