What a statement/ what a unusual find! I have had this doll in my collection for 36 years and she has always drawn lots of attention! Her head is hand carved wood with a heavy gesso covering. She is hand painted with horse hair wig. She is 16" tall and her hands and feet are also hand carved wood, no gesso. Over all, I would say she is in good condition- the lower part of one hand is missing- the gesso has some cracks and some gesso is chipped. No one has ever fooled with trying to repaint or repair this puppet. The clothes are free from tears, stains or odors. I have never changed anything on her since she has been in my collection but I do believe the ear rings have been changed. She comes with a Certificate of Identity, which I have photographed for your inspection. There is a home made stand that will be shipped with her. Any questions please e-mail. Thank you for your interest.
