She has a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, an open mouth with four square-cut upper teeth, and pierced ears. She stands at 24.5” on a fully-jointed, chunky antique wood and composition body (very fine quality), with the original finish. She wears her original curly brown hand-tied human hair wig.
She is beautifully dressed in a period style silk Gabriella dress, featuring a pale aqua jacket with a cream flounce on either side of the bodice, ending with a cream silk bow at the waist, all trimmed in cream antique lace, over a cream silk underdress with a two-tiered pleated skirt. Underneath, she wears a white cotton chemise, an antique white cotton half slip decorated with delicate floral white- and open-work embroidery, and a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons with pin tucks and lace trim. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks and pale aqua leather shoes with bows. On her head, finishing off the ensemble, is a pale aqua and white bonnet, covered in aqua and white silk ruffles, trimmed with antique white lace ruffles and a pair of white ties which matches her dress perfectly, and she wears a pair of faux pearl earrings in her ears.
MARKS: 209-13 / 22 / Germany
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The original glass eyes sleep well, and have good pupil alignment. The wood and composition body has minor and expected wear but is really outstanding in quality with tight sturdy stringing. The original antique wig is nice and full, with some fading to the bangs rendering them blond in comparison to the rest of her hair which has been freshly curled in it's original style. The costume is in great shape. Just a stunning high quality German dolly for your collection!
