She has a bisque socket head with painted and molded features: brown glass set eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, with an open mouth with six upper teeth, dimpled chin, and blushed cheeks over a pale complexion. She stands at 25” tall on a wood and composition fully-jointed body, and wears a fluffy blond mohair wig in tight curls that come down to her shoulders.
She wears a cream and pink silk dress with lace trim, embroidery, and a button-up back, with long sleeves. A pink bonnet sits atop her head, while underneath goes a white cotton antique sleeveless full slip, and a pair of pantaloons, along with a pair of simple white socks and white silk shoes.
MARKS: 275 [incised, back of head]
Germany [red stamp, left side of torso]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with the most particular attention paid to her painting and modeled-features. The glass eyes are set. The wood and composition body has held up well over the years, with only a few areas of paint touchups (both hands, the eck socket, and some of the joints). Overall, the body has its original finish, and is strung sturdily, with a nice look. The costume is in great condition, with only the most minor and typical wear. The wig is soft and supple, with a nice silhouette, with no smoke odors. Overall, this is a beautiful doll!
