Its a muslin cotton cloth with un-tinted bisque lower arms with slender fingers; the bisque lower legs have grey & brown slender boots with gold gilt accents & molded heels. The two-piece pale green satin ecru lace trimmed dress is fantastic with meticulous attention to detail, a perfect fit and the quality of a professional seamstress. The top has four tiny pearl buttons with hand-sewn braided loop closures.
It has three-quarter length sleeves - the antique lace is pinned on the lower arms & held in place with matching thin satin strips. The skirt has a rolled edge on the hem (as does the jacket).The undergarments display equal attention to detail: there is a cotton bust held in place with fine ecru netting. The ecru net half-slip has a brown-cotton finished hem.
There is a matching gathered satin purse on the left wrist. Condition: There are no nicks, chips, cracks, breaks, touch-ups or repairs to the bisque and no discernible wear to the paint on the face, hair, hat or shoulder plate.
