Unusual vintage wax half doll with original mohair wig, stuffed cloth body, porcelain arms/hands and porcelain lower legs/feet. This lovely lady is posed in a seated position and measures approximately 15-inches from head to toe. Dressed in luscious layers of ecru silk and lace, accented with ribbons and bows. She also wears a looped “pearl” necklace (not visible in photos), and her molded painted heels are decorated with gold painted buckles.
Her face is finely molded with painted eyebrows, wide eyes, aquiline nose and open mouth. Original dark brown mohair wig is in original style with curl down one shoulder. No visible marks. Wax coating on face and throat shows some fine cracks and fading, as pictured. The thumb on the left hand is broken (see photo). I see no other damage, dirt or repairs.
This is a lovely and unusual boudoir lady to perch on your dressing table or rest in a chair.
Beautiful dolls, vintage evening bags and sewing patterns.
Spring is in the air. Time to update to your collection, or to start a new one. Enjoy playing with your dolls.
