There are other repairs on the sides of her head and under the chin. The factory original face painting is in good condition and displays well. She's on her original body that's well strung and in great condition. It's been repainted and the left foot may have been repaired. She has all her original fingers.She has her original cork pate and original long human hair wig. She wears her original hand made silk dress.
The back of the dress is made of mesh fabric which indicates there was once a jacket that went with the dress. Her jacket was missing so I made her a fully lined satin jacket with embroidered Fleur de Las on the fabric. Her lace bonnet is original. Her underwear is made from Victorian fabrics and her very old decorated tie shoes are leather.This rare large exceptional Rabery & Delphieu ca. 1889 doll is truly spectacular.
Much of her is original. She's clean, strong and well put together. If you have been wanting one of these special dolls without the hefty price tag, this could be the one for you.
