She also wears a detachable white cotton collar, with a scalloped and eyeletted edge and a pink bow. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton full slip with a scalloped and eyelet embroidered hem, and a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons with lace trim.

On her head is an antique white cotton cap, with two layers of white lace ruffles at the brim, with pink insertion ribbon, and in her ears are a pair of faux pearl and round pink glass earrings.
Marks: S&H 1079 / DEP / 11 ½ [back of head, incised]
Heinrich Handwerck / Germany [stamped, side of torso]
Condition: Excellent. This girl has a beautiful bisque head that is free of hairlines, cracks, or restoration, and has excellent modeling, offering a beautiful dolly face that truly is alluring. The original glass eyes sleep well; they are slightly offset, mainly due to the slightly uneven eye cuts. The original stamped Handwerck body retains much of its original shiny finish, with minor and expected age wear. Overall, she is a truly an outstanding girl, having held up well over the many years and likely greatly loved and cherished by her previous owners!
