MARKS: J STEINER Bte
Fi re A 21
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. A very faint hairline to the upper left crown rim (see photo) and a minor inherent firing flaw under the left ear. Other than that she has gorgeous, pale bisque with expert painting of features and crisp modeling of very innocent and beautiful face. The applied ears with superb modeling and blushing. The original body in good sturdy condition with just some typical overall age wear and flaking at some joints with retouch. This fabulous Steiner has an extraordinary presence with a look of peaceful contemplation.!!! But most remarkable is her enormous size which I have never seen before. With her shoes and hat, she measures at 44" tall! Her commanding presence will surely create an outstanding figure amongst your other dolls!!! A must for the large doll collector or museum display setting! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! She is so rare I couldn't find her size in any of my doll reference books. If perfect she would price out at $12,000---But I am offering her at $7500 due to her very minor hidden damage!
