From the Lifetime Collection of. Ruth Marie only collected the very best. About 90% of her high-end dolls being auctioned were closed-mouth ones like this one -- Jumeau, Gaultier, Steiner, and such. Many of her dolls won blue ribbons at doll shows and UFDC conventions.
She is now in a retirement home and would like other doll collectors that's you! To have the chance to own and enjoy her past passion. 1870 flat-dome Belton-type doll, mold #183, is in the finest of conditions -- a MUST for anyones French doll collection.Belton-type antique dolls are most often attributed to France, though some believe they may have been made in Germany for the French market OR possibly made in both countries. She is a 14 cabinet-size bebe, with bisque socket solid-dome head with three holes (no cracks or hairlines; just a wig pull), platinum blond caracul wig, feathered eyebrows, painted upper and lower eyelashes, brown set glass eyes, closed mouth, pierced ears, a Sonneberg type jointed composition body with original paint and straight wrists. Just a perfectly beautiful French "Bru-face" bebe Belton, marked only with the mold number 183. She has a lovely caracul platinum blond wig. Her outfit is of highest quality workmanship. She is wearing a fine burgundy-velvet coat with pleated taffeta skirt. Her lace blouse is accented by a gold pin and matching amethyst-color pearl drop earrings.
A matching taffeta hat tops her off. Her stockings and shoes are antique and in excellent condition, as well as her antique undergarments. Beautiful antique condition for her age -- from a non-smoking environment.The above is my good-faith attempt to disclose all noteworthy issues. Keep in mind that vintage/antique items always show their age. It would be impossible to mention every tiny detail, so please expect that there will be something about this item (or lot) that's not perfect and may need touch-up. I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER. If you live in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, or U.
These countries have more flexible Priority Post options, but it depends on the size and value of the item you're purchasing. And provided the items can travel safely in the same box. Opens in a separate window/tab. As often happens, it's the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us.
Not knowing what they're doing. And then, when they realize they've ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective. BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT.. I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of. But these are antique and vintage dolls -- so, please understand that they won't be in brand-new condition.
There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body. Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls.
