French market and these dolls are especially well made and beautiful. Her painted features are all factory original with feathered eyebrows, very large set brown glass eyes and fine painted lashes all around. She has a shaded open mouth with four perfect porcelain teeth and a red felt tongue. Her complexion is lovely and her head is nearly perfect except for a shallow "U" shaped hairline along the top rim on the right side.
It has been restored and re-enforced on the inside and cannot "grow". She's on her original composition and wood jointed body that's in it's original paint with the usual wear at some of the joints. It has recently been restrung and holds a position. This dolls clothing is beautiful.
Her pantaloons and half slip are made from old cotton. Her full slip is made from Victorian underwear. It has a few small holes and some repairs to the lace but it's pretty good for being 100 years old. I think her dress is original, the sash has been added. Her head is stuffed with tissue paper and her pate and replaced wig are lightly attached.
