She has a bisque socket head with painted and molded features; blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, thick brown multistroke brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and a dimpled chin. She stands at 11” on her original straight-wristed antique wood and composition body. She wears a long blond human hair wig in two sweet braids.
She wears a vintage blue cotton dress, decorated with printed white solid and dotted hearts, with a white peter pan collar with a sweet blue silk flower, and a red silk sash around her waist. Underneath goes a matching antique white cotton set of a full slip and a pair of pantaloons, both with lace trim. On her feet are white knit socks, and tan leather shoes with white rosettes. On her head is a red felt hat, with the brim turned up in the front and decorated with a spray of dark blue silk flowers.
MARKS: 353 / Dep
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, bearing top-quality modeling and painting of features. The eyes sleep well, with good alignment. The body has high quality original finish and varnish and good stringing. The costume has some expected age wear, particularly shredding of the sleeves, which is to be expected with old silk. Overall, this fabulous girl has held up wonderfully over the years, and would make a fine addition to any collection!
She is pictured with three of her dear friends: a petite French clown, a charming sailor boy, and a darling little lady in red, all available to purchase separately!
