This is a very rare early black hair china doll which is 7 1/2" tall. Her lovely face is delicately painted with blue eyes, softly blushed cheeks and nostril dots. She has pierced ears displaying an earring with two beads in one ear and a plain earring in the other. Most impressive is her rare up-do hairstyle with soft curls around her face. She is on her original body with porcelain lower limbs including cupped hands and flat black shoes. Her two piece silk costume most likely is original because it appears to be fitted and sewn onto her body. However, it is very frail and melting with the back of the dress pretty much gone. We chose not to remove the dress for fear that disturbing the dress would damage the integrity of her originality. The costume included a jacket and long skirt in beige silk and trimmed with brown lace. She is a joy to behold and a wonderful addition to a china collection or for a large scale doll house.
