Part of the old rocker is still attached and the plaster of paris was replaced on one side. The inside of her head is dirty. This is how she came to me many years ago. Ive shown a light inside the head and used a black light.
I see no cracks or hairlines. She has pierced ears and blue paperweight eyes. There is a lot of glue residue around the rim of her head.The head is marked: Limoges FRANCE 11. There is a tiny chip in her right ear where she is pierced. She has a pretty face but her coloring looks slightly dirty. The torso has been repainted and it looks like there was some damage to it long ago. The neck socket is broken out a little. There are minor chips in leg sockets but they arent broken out. Arms: left arm has been repainted. Right arm has been repainted and has missing paint. Sockets are great and fingers are great. Legs: left leg has been repainted. The foot has been repaired/rebuilt. Right leg has been repainted and the ball at knee repaired. Unfortunately the person put the leg on backwards. This foot has also been repaired/rebuilt. PLEASE LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE PHOTOS. I try to describe the doll in detail but the photos will give you a better idea.
The pate is original and the wig is human hair. Wig is probably from the 1980s. Nice quality wig and hasnt been cut. Her dress is older, homemade and fits her well. There is a tear in the back of the skirt.
Someone took some time to make this dress. Sadly she has no undergarments. Oilskin shoes and old cotton socks. She is very pretty and can be displayed as she is. Its so hard to sell my dolls, they are family.
