She is truly lovely! She was made in Germany, circa 1860's. She is approx. 16" tall, old cloth body with leather arms and a beautifully painted head. The china has the old , thick wavy paste with the deep shoulder plate. It is in good shape- no chips, breaks, crazing or cracks. She has brown eyes which are rare and very desirable to the collector. Her coloring is vivid and just perfect! I believe the body is original to her. The original leather arms must have melted and someone did a beautiful job replacing them. The replacement arms appear to be circa 1940 ( you can tell this by the aging of the leather and the leather itself). The body is firm, no leaking, no odors. She comes with clothes that are circa 1860's - could be original to her or just collected for her. Her slip and pantaloons appear to be original to her- perfect fit, well made and buttons and button holes. Her dress is fragile, to say the least, but she still wears it well. She has two whites /sleeping wear. They are very sweet and clean- no stains, odors or tears. Any questions please e- mail. Thank you for your interest!
