This very sweet 19C petite china doll wearing her lovely original dress, is 8.5" tall, a perfect size for my 19C dollhouse. Her features are refined with bright blue eyes, flat top coif, and delicate hands and feet which are covered in pretty V style painted boots. On the back of her original muslin body there are some antique numbers in sepia ink. Her hand sewn ruffled bottom dress has a little floral print which looks a bit like stylized tulips, underneath she has on a homespun striped flannel petticoat with feather stitching. The flannel is very soft with a feathery texture you can see in the pics.
As to condition, there is damage to the shoulder plate, a chip at the bottom of the neck in the back and 2 light hairlines. Her face, hands and feet are perfect. The dress which is made of a heavier linen type cotton has shattering, or striation wear, in several places but actually looks quite good all of a piece. She looks absolutely perfect sitting in her antique chair with her dog and a fichu can always cover her neck. Her dress is exceptional.
