Her complexion is wonderful and undamaged, although there is a slight rub on the end of her nose. She has brown feathered eyebrows and her original big blue glass sleep eyes that are in their original mounts and work beautifully. However, the boo boo is that there is a very old horizontal hairline in the left eye (photo 7). It obviously is stable and not going to change and it's very hard to see and to photograph. It's always best to keep what's original so to replace the eyes would probably be a mistake.Her head is stuffed with tissue paper so that the eyes can never fall out so for now they don't sleep. She has a shaded open mouth with molded teeth, a red felt tongue and pierced ears.
This doll is on her original wood and composition body. It's in it's original paint thats not lifting or cracked, there is some normal wear at the joints. She has all of her original fingers and toes, the hands may have been repainted. She is very well strung. The clothing is not original to this doll, it came from my collection ca.1970, but fits her as though made for her. I believe the dress and matching hat are made of silk with lace and ribbon trim. It's beautiful and very well made. This doll has her original human hair wig, it's clean but a little thin (photo 11). She has a replaced brown wig of ringlets, both wigs will be included with the doll. She has a pressed styrofoam pate that is lightly attached to the head and the wigs are simply pinned to that. This doll has the pale complexion of an early doll, a truly special addition to any collection or a spectacular Christmas gift! Her starting price is well below actual value because of her boo boo.
