She has a sweet bisque socket head, in the unmistakable 192 model, with beautiful original blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, and multi stroke brows in a thick, dark style, reminiscent of the French dolls. The face is particularly pleasant, with a lifelike complexion. She has an open mouth with delicate shading and accents, four inset upper teeth, dimpled chin, pierced ears, and is topped by an antique hand tied brown human hair wig with multitudinous curls. She is on her 100% original Kammer & Reinhardt body and all-original finish. This body really sets her apart from the standard child bodied-dolls, with chunkier, well modeled limbs and torso, and a more lifelike appearance. She stands at 25.5" tall.
She is dressed to perfection, in her original gorgeous antique white cotton factory chemise with lavish lace trim, antique combination pantaloons with eyelet trim, antique half slip, white cotton knit socks, antique black oilcloth shoes, pretty antique cotton and lace bonnet.
MARKS: 192 / 2
CONDITION: Generally Excellent! Excellent quality to the bisque head, with a pale finish, and delicate shading and accents to the mouth, eyes, and cheeks, giving her just the right splashes of realistic blushing to bring her to life. Big blue glass sleep eyes sleep well, and have nice alignment, with a deep expressiveness. Her head is fabulous, with no hairlines or cracks, or other chips or restoration. The body is fine, with the shiny original finish giving it that nice glossy sheen. Only the most minor of overall age wear here and there, with some rubbing to the fingertips. However, there is a repair to the ankle of the right foot. Nice stringing to the body allows for great posing. The costume is great, with no excuses. Overall, this is a fabulous girl who will have you smiling as soon as you open up the box she comes in! Don't miss out on this outstanding beauty! LBK/M 3-10-20
