She has a china shoulder head with painted blue eyes, tapered brown brows, a closed mouth, and blushed cheeks. Her curly blond hair is molded and painted with a blue hairband with a bow. She stands at 17” tall on an antique cloth body with leather arms.
She wears a sheer pink cotton dress with a white printed floral pattern and lace trim at the hem, sleeves, and collar, which also features a small pink silk rose. The tightly gathered waist is accentuated by a blue silk sash, matching her painted hairband. Underneath, she wears a sheer pink cotton half slip with lace trim, matching her dress, and a pair of white cotton pantaloons, decorated with whitework embroidered roses, and net and lace over nylon at the knees. On her feet are a pair of brown leather shoes.
MARKS: -None visible-
CONDITION: Her china head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. There are a few tiny pepper specks and a small rub on her left cheek. The painting and detailing to the china is crisp and colorful. The top of the cloth body has been repaired and reinforced, and the arms have been extended and reattached. The rest of the cloth body has held up well, but shows some age-related discoloration. Her leather arms have also held up well. The costume is great, with minor to moderate 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.
