The cardboard box is in excellent condition w/ red original paper tape on the two ends -

The 18" doll has two wax faces w/ blue glass eyes - Painted feathered eyebrows & top & bottom eyelashes - Eye corners & nostrils have red accent dots on both faces - One face has an open mouth w/ a molded tongue and is very unhappy and yelling! - The other face has a slightly parted mouth w/ upper teeth and both have rosy cheeks - The head is attached with a spring that you can hear when the face is turned - The double face head is housed in a cardboard & plaster hood that is covered with the original fabric cap w/ two rows of pretty ruffled net lace - Blonde hair is attached to the front of the hood -

The shoulder plate is papier-mache' w/ a raised design of a shirt w/ collar & pleats in front - The back is solid and there is a glaze over the shoulder plate to give it a shiny finish - The cloth carton body is so clean and excellent and holds the speaker & crier - You make her cry by carefully pulling the pink string - Both the pink string and the tan string have cute little blue balls at the ends!! - The lower arms & legs are composition - If you love multi face dolls, you will adore her!!!

The doll is wearing her original cotton muslin dress w/ lace trim - There is some overall age discoloration that you would expect - There is an opening on the side for the crying strings to fit through so you don't have to go under her dress to make her cry - She has oilcloth shoes and another cotton lacy hood w/ bow that fits over the smaller hood - She really is something!!
