MARKS: 261 Dep / Made in Germany [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top quality modeling and painting of features. Her sleep eyes sleep well but the lids have been re-waxed and re-painted, and are aligned well in the head. The body has only some minor and expected age wear, which is to be expected. The body is tightly-strung, so she can strike a variety of simple poses. The costume is truly fabulous and would be fine enough to be worn by a French doll! Overall, this is a beautiful doll, bound to make an impression in your collection!
