She has a French pressed bisque socket head with gorgeous large almond cut dark blue paperweight eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke stacked French-style brows, a closed-mouth with bee-stung full lips, and pierced ears. She stands at 27” on her original chunky straight-wristed French wood and composition body, and wears a lovely very dark brown antique human hair French wig, styled in curls with bangs.
She is dressed in a very pretty modern-made peacock blue silk frock, with a paisley brocade pattern and a greenish shine, featuring a cream-colored triangular front placket, with mother of pearl buttons, a dropped waist with a knife-pleated skirt, and tan lace trim at the waist, along the front placket, along the large pointed collar and the neckline, and at the sleeves, which also feature knife-pleated cuffs. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton full slip with a large tuck and lace trim, and a pair of antique white pantaloons with lace trim. On her feet are a pair of antique cream-colored net stockings and reproduction Jumeau brown leather shoes with silk rosettes at the toes. On her head is an antique cream and pale pink silk bonnet, with ruching at the back, net along the bottom, tatted lace at the brim, and silk flowers along the brim. In her ears are a pair of blue round glass and faux pearl earrings. —JUST a really STUNNING presentation!!
MARKS: E 12 D / DEPOSE
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of cracks, chips, hairlines, or restoration. She has lovely, pale powdery bisque with delicate and sensitive painting of features, glowing pale color with sumptuous shading and deep modeling of gorgeous face. She has some obvious pepper spots on her face (see photos). Her lips are so luscious with an expectant look almost as though she is ready to say something! The original body in very good condition, with touchups to one leg and rebuilt toes on one foot, but otherwise retains its original finish with minor and expected age wear. Her costume is in great condition, with a repaired toe on one stocking, and slightly opened seams on the sleeves of the modern-made dress to accommodate her arms. The silk of the antique bonnet is also slightly deteriorated, as is typical of antique silk. This is a truly beautiful closed-mouth ED (perhaps even the most beautiful one I have ever owned!) And she is ready to join your collection. Will you be the happy new owner? This lovely ED can compete with any Jumeau or FG for quality and beauty!!
