Charming Estate doll stands about 24 tall, German made Handwerck with Frenchy look, overall super nice and appears all original, just needs cleaning. She has a ring of dust around the crown of her head from the wig sitting in place for the last 100 years. I've done nothing to her as you can see from her dirty bisque. I've taken a loupe to her eyes and head and they look good, no hairlines, chips or repairs. One plaster chip around one eye inside her head, minor detail.
The wax on the back of her lids looks nice, this girl was not made with lashes. Her blue spiral eyes are stunning (even dirty) and her wig is original with some curl still remaining.
It can be fixed up. She has all fingers, all toes, her paint overall lovely, joint-area chips, age related. Some minor paint rubs to a few tips of fingers. She is not strung properly but has make-shift stringing to keep her all together.
She does need to be properly strung. She appears to have been lightly handled back in the day, possibly not played with much. The yellowing patina on her dress is from age. You can try to soak but it's delicate. She has 4 layers of original clothing which I've shown you in one of the photos, the pin tucked dress being the top later.
Her hat is silk which is in good condition except for some silk deterioration on the top, I've left everything as is, you decide what it needs, (see photo of hat). She has her original darling black "B" socks with charming Frenchy black bow leather shoes. Final note: the photos show a tiny speck of lint near one nostril.....Its just dust, not her bisque. DOLL HAS 4 TEETH IN GOOD CONDITION AND HAS A BALL JOINTED ALL COMPOSITION ORIGINAL BODY, ORIGINAL PAINT IN NICE COND.
