The bisque head is marked DEP and is free of b. Reaks or repairs and there is only one small flake of paint missing on the side of the forehead where I think the old wig was attached. The eyes are blue glass and open and close perfectly. The original cork pate has lots of wear but still fits securely into the head, although it does have alot of wear. The head has beautiful painted features with no damage to them, but alots of the wax covering the tops of the eyes has come off but cannot be seen unless the eyes are closed.
Her ears are pierced and have no chips. The composition body is jointed and the stringing is pretty loose and will need to be restrung. There is some paint flaking thoughout but nothing major, the front and rear of the upper body has been repaired and it looks like the neck area has been repaired or could just have been filled looks like wood filler in the cracked area, but is holding secure. There is damage to the left foot on both sides, one side has been filled and the other has not, and there is a crack in the surface of the right thigh, see pics, these are secure and are not structure damage only surface.No missing or repaired fingers. She is dressed in an older outfit that is in the french style. The dress is made from silk or rayon/ silk, and has very nice hand work lace and flowers design throughout, and Elizabeth embroidered on the front, see pictures, a cotton one piece slip, and pantelettes made of the same materal as the dress, trimmed in the same lace. The hat appears to be older vintage trimmed in silk ribbon, lace, and silk millinary flowers.
Hat flowers are a little aged, but still nice, still a nice vintage hat. The shoes are french style but are reproductions, but are in nice shape and trimmed with gold buckles. Socks appear to be vintage and cotton.
The pale blonde mohair wig is very nice with lots of curl and is clean and bright, but is a newer addition but is a higher end replacement. This is a super nice french doll and has been in my collection for about 20 years, she has been packed away for about 6 years in a climate controlled area, so there is some flattening of the wig and clothing from being packed away. No odor , from a smoke free home. Please ask all questions before auctions end as this will be a final sale.
