Offered is an 11" German papier mache "Milliner's Model" with original paint and dress and a lovely extended updo with deeply molded curls and a tall beehive. She wears her original dress with lace netting (a few holes in the netting) and silk lining. A few antique trims have been added that give it a certain wow factor.
Very nice painting around hairline with feathered wisps of hair and nicely modeled waves. Her head is in excellent condition with some minor touch ups around the mouth and one deeper stable crack on the right shoulder. The hair also has a couple of small dings above the ears that are greatly magnified in pictures. She is on her original slender kid leather body with wooden limbs. Waist has a taped reinforcement and there is one kid patch above right knee.
A wonderful survivor from 1830!
