She has a bisque socket head with beautiful modeling and expert painting, with dark brown glass sleep eyes, framed by painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, an open mouth with four square-cut upper teeth, a lightly dimpled chin, and pierced ears, with lightly blushed chunky cheeks and an overall pale complexion. She stands at 17” tall on her original straight-wristed wood and composition body, and wears a soft blond mohair wig, styled in curls.

She is adorned in a sweet modern-made silk frock, in a red, black, and white checked pattern, with a pleated skirt, a pleated red silk waist sash, a long jabot of three tiers of red and checked silk and cream-colored lace ruffle, edged on the bodice by scalloped lace, a cream lace capelet collar, and pleated cream lace on the sleeves and collar; the collar lace has been tucked in as it is very tall. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton half slip with inset lace, pin tucks, and lace trim, and a pair of antique white cotton combinations with lace trim. On her feet are a pair of white knit stockings and brown leather shoes with maroon silk rosettes. In her hair is a sweet maroon bow. A simply classic and festive presentation!

MARKS: S8H 769 DEP [back of head, incised]

CONDITION: Excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Modeling is crisp and the painting is sharp and delicate, indicative of particular care by the manufacturers. There are some rubs to the eyebrows. The brown glass eyes sleep well, with good pupil alignment, though the eye cuts are slightly uneven. The original wood & composition body has some areas of touch-ups, but otherwise retains much of its original shiny finish. The costume is great, with no major issues, just some minor and typical age wear. This is a fantastic girl, deserving of your attention!
