Her complexion is almost white, an indication of a very early doll. She has single stroke light brown eyebrows, big, luminous blue paperweight set eyes with red eyelid liner and a painted closed mouth with a white separation line. She has black eyeliner, but no painted eyelashes. This is unusual, but original to this doll.There is a small paint rub on the left eyebrow. Her face is all original and gorgeous. She wears a mohair wig that is loose on her head and fits her perfectly. This doll's gusset leather body is in very good condition, the porcelain lower arms and hands are perfect. There has been some reinforcement on the leather upper arms and the yoke has been refurbished. The leather is stained in a few places, but there are no repairs and it's not leaking.
She has a full set of underwear consisting of a chemise, pantaloons, a long half slip, knit knee socks and leatherette side buckle shoes. Her long sleeve blouse and skirt are made from old brocade rayon and antique lace. She wears an antique crocheted shawl.
