Once in a lifetime 28" Covered Wagon China Lady With Wooden Legs
If I could keep any of the dolls I currently have listed on RubyLane, she would be the one. Why? Simply because you won't find a rarer, more spectacular china doll anywhere, under $3000. Wow. With SUPER EARLY wooden legs, her fabulous PINK TINT, not ONE SPEC of wear to her head or perfect early articulated hands, and this FABULOUS TROUSEAU CHOCK FULL OF ACCESSORIES... Who are we kidding? She's a ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY DOLL.
*YES- PUT HER ON LAYAWAY!* Not everyone has the money for incredibly rare dolls like this one, but if you are willing to make an investment for your collection and need time to pay, we are happy to work out a layaway plan that fits you! Call us at 718-859-0901 to chat!
She has the FINEST antique china doll porcelain head with a delicate pink tinted blush to her cheeks. Her incredible original cloth body is in FABULOUS condition with those amazing all original wooden lower legs. She has a spectacular pair of original china hands in perfect condition (we believe they have a very very slight pink tint as well.) And what a face! As all of the finest antique china dolls have, she has extreme detail to the eyes and superb overall sculpting. She has sweet little red lips, and blushed cheeks and super deep modeling of her curls! Really now, HER HAIR IS AMAZING! No less than ten sausage curls fall around her head. She truly has finer and deeper modeling than any other Covered Wagon girl I have seen. Take a look at a few photos of similar heads; her quality is unmatched.
She is being sold with a fabulous trouseau- which she most certainly took with her on her covered wagon! Included are quilts, coats, capes and other pieces! Please see the photographs or call for a description. The spectacular dome top trunk is in very good shape with original insert in excellent condition; the dimensions are as follows: 12.5" long, 8" wide, 10" high.
This all original costume is just incredible. A fabulous print purple and cream dress with stunning detail. A superb costume, it was most probably made to her measurements. She has no less than four layers of underwear including two half slips, a chemise top and pantaloons (all of appropriate age.) The first slip features a crocheted edge, and the other with fabulous double scalloped embroidery. We have added a collar to cover some of the damage on the bodice of the dress, but it is photographed so you may see its current state. The spectacular pink cloak is an excellent accessory as well that fits her flawlessly. Overall, this doll has a wonderful presentation.
Condition: Perfect china head, in wonderful shape, with spectacular china hands in fabulous condition. Her body as well is in near mint shape. We just know that we will never get the chance to handle another china girl in this condition, and we want to place her in a loving home where she will be appreciated for years to come.
