This classic Armand Marseilles 390 antique doll is fully marked on the back of her head as seen in the last picture . ( Please note that what looks like a crack in the back of her head is not and just a strand of her hair . ) ....... She has a bisque head and composition body with jointed arms in three places , her legs in two. She is wearing the clothes she had on when I got her and although in good condition there are cracks in her arms as shown in the photos. ( I've spruced her up a bit , ...... the white cotton dress , slip , pantaloons and socks have been freshly laundered although still have some brown stains . ) Clothes are likely not original except for maybe the undies , ( stitched on the sides to make them stay up, as the elastic is no more. )The white cotton dress is antique and the flocked cardboard shoes and cotton knee socks vintage .
Wearing an old champagne blond mohair wig , ( not sure if original ) , she has brown sleep eyes with painted lashes and brows and a sweet open mouth with four teeth. One brow is scuffed just slightly but the rest of her painted face is perfect .
* Sometimes I have been asked by buyers to remove the wigs and stuff the dolls' heads with paper so the eyes don't move while in transit . If this is something you would like me to do I will. Also , I apologize for the horizontal pictures which I could not rotate . Alas I didn't want to undress and dress her again . ........ The pink ribbon in her hair is vintage and added just for fun !
