This lovely French doll is an SFBJ 232 with all original clothes. She is 18" tall with bisque head on a compo body that is jointed at the neck, shoulder, hip and knee. The arms and wrists are straight. The bisque head has sleep eyes, feathered brows and an open mouth with molded teeth. There is no real damage and no repair to the bisque. There is a cheek rub, some soiling, a few straw lines from the mold and some peppering. (Buyer please note that there is a wire across the inside the head so carefully remove tissue.) The ribbon style hat is sewn to the original wig and there is a pate. Wig shows wear. The clothes are sewn on and consist of lovely fabrics. There is a velvet bodice, shawl, ribbons, sequins, apron front, floral trimmed skirt, ruffled slip, pantaloons and socks. No shoes and the socks are torn and stuck to the bottoms of the feet. Overall the clothes are nice and in good shape with some minor wear and fading. I have not removed as they are sewn on. Doll will need just a bit of primping to become a true prize to your collection. The arms stringing is very loose and there is some general light soil, but no bad odors. Body in good shape with only some crazing, soiling and some paint chips, notably on the fingers. Here is a nice sized SFBJ doll with a harder to find mold number and factory outfit. A chance to have a lovely French doll that is reasonably priced.
