This is a superb example of Francois Gaultier's french fashion doll. She was sold on layaway which recently changed to another item. She is majestic, standing 25" tall. Her bisque head is flawless - no hairlines, blemishes, repairs. She has pale creamy bisque, gorgeous blue paperweight glass eyes, her original cork pate and a replacement blonde mohair wig. She has pierced ears with her original earrings. The best part about this doll is she is wearing her all original blue silk walking suit with embroidered red leaves. Her hat is a millenary concoction of woven straw, feathers, plumes and trims. She has her original undergarments, black socks and original matching red leather shoes! It is rare to find a wonderfully preserved FG in this size and condition! The dress is fraying so I will not remove the bodice to film the body. It will destroy it if you remove it. The bodice has wonderful hand molded brass buttons, red velvet bows on the back. The silk is the finest quality and this must have belonged to quite an important family. Don't be worried about the body - I can tell it is nice and firm. I have enjoyed this doll in my collection and now it is time to free up some space. I am willing to accept layaway with $400 down provided the remainder is paid in 16 monthly installments or less. Don't let this one get away! She is outstanding!
