Take a moment to get lost in the world of childhood whimsey with this beautiful little mignonette. Imagine her in the palm of your hand, her sweet goldilocks tickling your knuckles, the soft sensation of her dress, and the smooth, cool touch of her bisque arms... The satisfying weight of an antique bisque doll as compared to flimsy modern plastic dolls. Who wouldn't want this treasure in the top shelf of their cabinet?
One of the most beautiful all-bisques we have recently handled, my heart simply skips a beat when I see this angel. Nine whole inches of all bisque joy await the lucky new parent of this extremely sweet little girl, who is ready to be proudly displayed as a crowning cutie of any collection, large or small. In fact, she measures in at a solid nine and a half inches when wearing her wig and hat; who would want to display her bald anyway? I just love those high blue stockings (rarer than the black stockings often found on this mold), her daintily painted and molded black two strap high heeled boots with molded bows on top, not to mention her CLASSIC 886 face. It is very hard to find the classic face in smaller sizes, but this girl is just the ticket for the collector who will not settle for anything less. I know that this beauty will not be here long. This little imp is destined for greatness, wherever her new home may be... And hours of play time, that's for certain! Get her before she, too is marked 'Sale Pending.'
