When I got Marlene, her former owner's dog had nibbled off the fingers of one or her hands and the heel of one of her shoes. She was badly crazed and her body was falling apart. Her face has been restored and repainted, new eyelashes and platinum blonde mohair wig added; her arms and legs repaired and repainted, and her cloth body recovered. Her gently washed and pressed peach satin dress is original with new trim added to spruce it up. A new slip, pantaloons, felt hat and veil were added to enhance her sultry 30's movie queen side glance. Dietrich? Maybe a little like her.
