The doll has the original wood and composition ball jointed body. She wears a floral lawn dress from the Theriault Dollmasters Antique Reproduction Clothing Collection. Details follow.

She wears a quality synthetic dark blonde wig with full bangs and a medium length.
BODY: The wood and composition ball-jointed body, by Handwerck, is original for the doll. The body was re-painted in the past so the Handwerck mark was covered. All the fingers are present, with one repaired after a break. There are also a few superficial paint cracks, but none have missing paint. There is a small flake of missing paint on her right shoulder. All the joints function easily. The body has secure stringing, so the doll easily holds varied poses.

The trim is pre WWII 100% cotton from old stock recently discovered. The dress features long sleeves with shoulder epaulets, a belt that ties in the back and a 3″ ruffle around the hemline. The length is mid-calf. The dress is closed on the back with a tiny safety pin. Underneath is a white chemise that is lace trimmed and has buttons on the back. White thigh high stockings and older black buckle shoes complete her outfit. This girl is display ready and will make an outstanding addition for a collection. The doll is fully guaranteed to meet all of your expectations.
