A really gorgeous wax doll with likely a reinforced wax head. This beautiful girl has inset blue glass eyes, feathered eyebrows, and a lovely pale brown mohair wig with an original set and braid on top with two silk bows. She has wax over arms and legs, and a delightful pair of painted boots with molded and painted tassels.
Clothing consists of pantaloons, a wool slip, chemise and slip, and a beautiful blue colored walking suit with a gathered form fitting jacket, covered buttons, and a gathered skirt and overskirt.
Along with the walking suit the doll has a lovely silk and lace gathered evening dress. The dress is of a striped silk and lace material with a slightly polka dot gathered material at the bottom. Buttons are covered with silk.
