She has a bisque socket head, with brown glass sleep eyes, painted lower lashes, feathered and molded brown brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and a lightly dimpled chin. She stands at 14” on her original stamped fully jointed wood and composition body, and wears a chocolate brown French human hair wig.

She wears an antique white cotton dress with a windowpane check weave, crochet lace ruffles at the shoulders, an antique blue enamel bar pin at the bodice, blue ribbon trim at the waist and sleeves, and white cord trim at the hem. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton half slip with insertion lace and pair of pantaloons. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks and modern-made tan leather slippers. On her head is a blue crochet bonnet.

MARKS: D / made in Germany [back of head, incised]

CONDITION: Generally excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with high quality painting and molding of features; there is a rub on her top lip. The original glass eyes sleep well, with good pupil alignment. The original wood & composition body has some areas of touchups and age wear, but otherwise retains its original shiny finish and original stamp. The costume is great overall, with some minor age wear, and presents very well. Overall, this is a fantastic doll in great condition, and bound to please!
