The doll is all original and is in good antique condition although it does need to be restrung. We have not attempted to clean or restore the doll in any way.
The bisque socket head appears to be a type of terracotta with fixed glass blue eyes. The mouth is open with 4 exposed teeth.
The eyelashes, brows, lips, and cheeks are painted and the color is very good. There are painted red dots at the corners of the eyes and to indicate the nostrils. We do not see any cracks or chips. It could use a careful cleaning but the condition is otherwise good.
The hair is dark and is just exposed beneath a tightly wrapped turban. The hair looks like human hair to us. The body is wood and jointed. It does need to be restrung as stated and we were missing one ball joint for the knee.
We have included a new ball that we believe to be the correct size. The outfit is all handmade, stitched tightly and appears to be all there. We hope you will look at our pictures for more information and feel free to ask questions if needed. Thank you for your interest.
