French Bisque Early Poupee with Cobalt Blue Eyes by Gaultier - 13 inches/original antique silk dress
This doll measures 13". The antique doll is a bisque shoulder head with a round face, cobalt blue glass enamel eyes and closed mouth. She has a painted center accent line, unpierced ears, and a long blonde mohair wig over cork pate.
She has a shapely kid poupee body that has no joints at the knees. She has stitched separated fingers.
She is wearing a silk antique dress, white undergarments, stockings, black shoes that look to have been made for her.
She is wearing a woven silk bonnet that has red decoration on the top front.
Her "smiling" expression is very pleasant. I have elected not to remove the clothing entirely due to age and fragile condition of the silk, however, I have cut the front threads closing the dress front to expose her wonderful, antique under garments that are in perfect condition as seen.
The leather body is in good condition, there is some finger damage as shown in picture an is common for this antique dolls.
