She has a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with two upper teeth and a fabric tongue. She stands at 13” tall on a 5-piece toddler body, with bent arms and straight legs. She wears her original curly brown mohair wig.
She wears her original off-white cotton dress, decorated with embroidered polka dots and vertical openwork ladders, and trimmed with light beige cord at the sleeves, and in three lines on the bodice, starting at the collar, with a cord bow on the lowest line. The dress is finishes off with a very pale pink silk sash with a flower-like silk bow. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton half slip, and an antique off-white cotton onesie with lace trim. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks, and white oilcloth shoes. In her hair are goldtone hairpins and a spray of white flowers on either side of her head.
MARKS: R 86 A / 2/0
CONDITION: The bisque head has no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, but has a few pepper spots and inherent marks, as well as a slight rub on the right cheek. The glass eyes sleep well. The body is in good condition, with only the most minor wear. The costume is good, with only minor wear and age-related discoloration; 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. Unless there is some major issue we overlooked in the condition report, we decline to entertain any proposals for price reductions due to a less than perfect condition report. Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
