One of the best, this girl is destined for greatness with her sweet face, deeeeeply molded curls and those stunning blue eyes. With such attention to painting, gorgeous features, her original body, costume and shoes, this girl has more value points than we can count. I am very pleased with her sweet expression and her excellent condition makes her a NO excuses gem!
She has absolutely lovely porcelain with a delicate pink tinted blush to her cheeks. Her shapely original body is in fabulous condition, with beautiful sewn on leather hands, but we believe it might have been re-covered; or it has simply been kept in excellent shape. The top of the cloth certainly has been re-covered to showcase her gorgeous long line neck.
And what a face! As all of the finest antique china dolls have, she has extreme detail to the eyes and superb overall sculpting- but her lids are SPECTACULAR- you can really see the nuance of the bottom and top lids. She has sweet, smiling little red lips, and blushed cheeks and super deep modeling her very rare hair; you can count every strand of her beautiful hair!
She's wearing her fabulous original white cotton dress with delicate tucking down the front, feather stitched collar and cuffs with self ruffle. Beautiful original antique undergarment set of a matched half slip and pantaloon duo. Beautiful original black socks and leather shoes with buckles. A sweet added black silk sash and golden pin finish her ensemble.
Condition: Excellent! She is in beautiful shape with hardly any wear to the hair (2-3 noticeable flakes, but such is to be expected.) She does have three pepper spots; two little ones on her nose and one beauty mark on her neck; these were inherent in her firing. You just won't find another girl so beautiful as this! A true Civil War era china gem!
