The often overused word, “awesome” finds its true strength and meaning with this AWESOME, 9” Kuhnlenz all bisque having deep, ebony complexion. Both her rare size and color give her a dramatic presence that accentuates her warm brown glass eyes, closed mouth with cadmium coral lips, original black skin wig, kid-lined swivel neck, detailed torso with lifelike molding, jointed shoulders and hips, and beautifully sculpted hands and bare feet. Her left cheek has a stubborn, varying but smooth surface area that even after vigorous cleaning, wants to be there. Mostly visible at close range, and maybe an inherent factory condition. Underneath her wig, where the wig was originally lifted, there are spots of her white base bisque showing through. Her antique, factory frock of red floral print cotton and coordinating knit bonnet look quite smart on her and play so well with her rich coloring. For footwear, she wears cross-tied silk ribbons, just like her French, all bisque mignonette cousins would wear.
