This offering is for an adorable 16” Armand Marseille (“1894 / AM 1 DEP.”) doll wearing her original silk flapper dress w matching undergarments. HEAD: The bisque swivel head has no damage or restoration and has delicately painted features, bright paperweight blue glass eyes and an open mouth that shows four upper teeth. She wears a replaced lovely dark blond wig with long sausage curls and decorated with a large black bow. The wig is affixed to the head. BODY: Dolly has her original composition stick leg body with early straight wrists. The paint is original. has all original paint. CONDITION: There are a few very light superficial paint cracks on the left leg; the right hand has a missing thumb and scuffs on the underside of the fingers; the stringing is loose on the legs. The joints are still fitted to the hip sockets and she displays well in a standing position with a stand. Overall, the body is in very good condition, better than most bodies of this type and age. ATTIRE: Dolly wears a very fine, light as a feather, peach colored silk chiffon dress which is sewn on her body. The dress has features that include a pin tucked bodice decorated with tiny MOP buttons, fitted puffy elbow length sleeves, a dropped waist that has a fitted band and a short full skirt. The dress is in remarkably fine condition considering the inherent fragility of the fine silk fabric and the age. You’ll find a few tiny tears (as in melting) on the right sleeve and skirt if you carefully examine the dress, but it is totally intact and has no mends. The undergarments are made of the same silk fabric and consist of a chemise and a pair of bloomers. The bloomers are in fair condition but have lost ties that secured the garment tightly around the waist and is closed now with a small safety pin. Vintage black stockings and black shoes complete her attire. What a sweet girl—she’s display ready and fully guaranteed to meet your expectations. Domestic Shipping by USPS Insured Priority Mail for a flat fee of $18. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for looking.
