This antique French Closed Mouth Rabery and Delphieu cutie is just under 14" tall or about 13.75" without her hat. She is about 15 with her hat. Thin tight hairline on the top of her forehead and one 1/4 rim crack on the other side above her ear. Marked R5/0 D on her head. I love her curious expression with one eyebrow slightly raised.She wears a beautiful antique ivory lace dress. Her genuine mohair kidskin cape is sublime. It is buttery soft and ties with silk ribbon. Her beautiful antique hat has some fraying silk on the brim, but the top is sturdy starched antique lace. She comes with a nice cork pate and great fitting new mohair wig.
She wears beautiful ivory lace matching full slip and bloomers. She has antique stockings which I think are pale pink silk and nice reproduction shoes.
Tightly strung, original old body, which had been repainted many years ago. One hand might be an old replacement. Crack on thumb might show a repair. She has lovely dark blue eyes with well painted brows and a sweet closed mouth. Nice blue earrings in her pierced ears and a beautiful blue antique pin at her neck.
