She has a bisque shoulder head with expert modeling and crisp detailing. Her brown set paperweight eyes are framed by painted upper & lower lashes and brown multistroke brows. She has an open mouth with four square-cut upper teeth, and a slightly dimpled chin. She wears a soft ginger mohair wig in a curly style. She stands at 23.5” tall on her antique gusseted kidskin body with bisque lower arms.
This girl wears an antique very pale pink cotton dress, with a plain bodice and sleeves, and a skirt decorated with tucks, with a white lace ruffle halfway up the skirt. On top of this, she wears a detachable white cotton collar, trimmed with lace and decorated with whitework embroidery depicting vines with leaves. Underneath, she wears a white cotton half slip, with a satin band at the top, and tucks and overlaid handmade lace at the hem, and a pair of white cotton pantaloons with two layers of overlaid lace trim. On her feet, she wears white knit socks and white leather shoes. Her outfit is finished off with a pale pink silk sash at her waist and a matching pale pink silk bow in her hair.
MARKS: 11 [kidskin collarette may be hiding other marks]
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. The bisque shoulderhead is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The painting is excellent and the modeling is crisp and detailed. Her brown glass eyes are set straight in her head. Her right arm appears to have broken and been glued back together in two places, and is stable. The antique kidskin body is in good condition. All gusset joints have been patched. The rest of the kidskin has some minor age-related wear, with prominent discoloration on the left arm.
