She has a bisque socket head with beautiful modeling and expert painting, with big blue glass sleep eyes, framed by painted lower lashes, thick feathered brown brows. She also features an open mouth with four upper teeth, a dimpled chin, and pierced ears, with lightly blushed cheeks. She stands at 25.5” tall on a fully-jointed wood and composition body. She wears a long, curly ginger mohair wig.
She wears a purple velvet dress, trimmed with green and off-white braided cord in the shape of vines of flowers and leaves at the hem, collar, and sleeves, with a pale pink silk sash around her waist. Underneath, she wears a white cotton half slip, with tucks and a cotton ruffle at the hem, and a pair of white cotton pantaloons trimmed with tucks and lace. On her feet are a pair of white cotton socks and black leather shoes. Finishing off the ensemble is a pale pink silk bow in her hair, and a pair of earrings with round goldtone and faceted metallic purple glass beads.
MARKS: BSW [in heart]
CONDITION: Excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Modeling is crisp and the painting is sharp and delicate, indicative of particular care by the manufacturers, and she has an overall pleasant and pale complexion. The blue glass eyes sleep well, and sit nicely in the head, with good pupil alignment. The original wood & composition body has its all original finish, with the original glossy varnish on top to give it a nice sheen. The costume is in great antique condition, with some minor and expected age wear.
