The dress is finished off with a white silk grosgrain sash. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton half slip, a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons with lace trim, and an antique white cotton chemise, also with lace trim. On her feet are a pair of antique brown knit socks and antique German two-tone black and brown oilcloth shoes with curved soles.

CONDITION: Excellent! The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality painting and modeling of features. The glass eyes sleep well, and are aligned nicely in the head. The body is in excellent original finish condition, with glossy finish and varnish, with sturdy stringing and nice overall modeling. The costume is in overall great shape, with only minor and typical wear, and a missing sole on one shoe. This wonderful German dolly is quite a beauty! Don’t let her be the one that got away!
