This beautiful lady is very hard to let go. She is a wax flapper doll sitting atop a Boudoir basket. She is dressed in her original clothing that is fixed to her and is wearing gold lamé ballet pumps. Her dress is made of rayon with a silk sash. There is some damage to the sash and also to the net petticoat and silk under her frock, this is commensurate with age and does not detract from her at all. Like a wax half doll her upper body and head are made from wax and her lower part cloth that has been stuffed. She is also wearing her original beads and bracelet and cloche hat. She has blonde bobbed hair poking out from underneath the cloche either side. She is fixed to a beautiful pink rayon and metallic lace boudoir basket. The basket also has a matching pillow fixed inside. I wonder if there was originally something in the basket. There is also a French label attached to the bottom of the basket which I have photographed. There is age related wear and marks but nothing to detract from her beauty. She does have a tendency to lean slightly but she can be gently moved to straighten her up. The piece measures 13.5 inches tall by 11.5 inches wide.
Layaway is possible, please contact me for details.
