This pretty doll was made by Schmitt et Fils, circa 1882. She stands 29" tall and is marked with the raised number 9 on the back of her head. She has beautiful bisque and dreamy large blue paperweight glass eyes. Her face is beautifully painted - her closed mouth nicely outlined and perfect feathered brows. She is on her original 8 loose ball composition body, which bears the shield mark under the torso. Her body is in good condition and is original to her. She wears a beautiful antique dark blonde human hair wig over cork pate which is nice and full with long banana curls. She has wonderful undergarments including a wool slip. Her dress is a work of art onto itself: It is made of antique fabrics from an antique gown. The dress is a very light peach silk satin covered with silk organdy on the bodice and tulle on the skirt. It is decorated with beautiful antique lace, ribbons and beads. The dress is lined and closes in the front with hooks. It has a large satin bow on the back. She comes with an antique ribbon bonnet, necklace, earrings and wonderful antique white leather shoes with little buckles. There is a very small surface scratch or craze to one eye but it is not noticeable unless you enlarge the photos to search for it. Not shown is her original large brown wood box lined with a straw type of material. International buyers be aware that I cannot ship the box due to its size unless you are prepared to pay a large surcharge. This dreamy doll can be yours on layaway with just $800 down provided the remainder is paid in 24 monthly payments or less.
