This striking lady with her molded dark brown hair in a chignon would have been the lady of an Edwardian or early 1920s doll house. This 6.25 inch tall dollhouse woman wears what appears to be an early homemade, but well-tailored, blouse and and matching skirt of a silky material in white, pale blue, and pink, but underneath there appears to be an original outfit, or at least a factory-made pink skirt trimmed with lace (her flapper-influenced ensemble is sewn on, so I cannot remove it to fully expose what she is wearing underneath). Beneath the pink skirt is an original white slip and ecru lace-trimmed bloomers made of some sort of crepe material. This handsome woman has a bisque head and limbs and a cloth body. Her head is of good bisque, she has a pretty face and classic profile, and her molded dark hair is deeply comb marked. There are no visible marks, but she is of good German quality. Other than a light stain on the back left shoulder and a smaller, fainter mark on the back of her skirt, her clothing is in wonderful condition for her age, and there are no breaks or repairs. There is a tiny bit of mold debris on the right side of her chin (it looks like a mole) and some very faint scattered speckling on her face; these minute factory flaws are noticeable only upon the closest inspection and while they do not from this dollhouse dame's charms, they do attest to her age and authenticity.
