This is a doll that I have treasured for more than 12 years in my collection: an all original unmarked French fashion doll that dates to the 1870's. Her bisque head is free from any hairlines, damage or restoration. She has pale bisque with beautiful spiral enamel blue glass eyes, faint blushing on her checks and closed mouth. Her head swivels and she has pierced ears with lovely pearl earrings. She has her original blonde mohair wig, with a single long braid, over a cork pate. She is lavishly dressed in an amazing purple silk two piece suit: the purple silk bodice is trimmed with fabulous black Alsace lace, and then a very long piece of similar lace is sewn onto the bottom which fans out over the back of her skirt.. Her black silk skirt has a wonderful apron made from matching black striped silk with elaborate blue trim. This gown is in amazing condition and was well preserved! Her purple velvet hat is trimmed with lace as well. She has darling antique black velvet boots with three little brass buttons on each boot. She even has matching purple socks! She has her original undergarments and comes with a newer necklace. Her kid leather body has patching/reinforcement but is solid with no leaking. She isn't marked but could be Barrois. This lovely doll can be yours on layaway with just $300 down provided the remainder is paid in 12 monthly payments or less.
