Dressed in her gorgeous original silk fashion gown, plus accessories. CONDITION : The beautiful bisque head and shoulder plate are in excellent condition without any damage or hairlines (has been light tested). The kid leather body is in fair condition it has had alot of repairs, stitching and leather patches etc (please see photos) but it has been done loving in order to keep the original body going for another 100 years. Also a bit grubby looking in places consistent with age.
Looks like it had some tape around it at some point but has been removed to show the beauty of the original body. The leather fingers are very good. The original wig is very good and still in the original style. One of the best assets of this fashion doll besides her large size and beautiful face is the fact she comes dressed in her original french fashion haute couture gown. This consists of a full length pale lilac taffeta silk skirt with frill and bustle detail, still has original bustle pads.Matching lined jacket with frill collar, cuff and hem detail with glass turquoise bead buttoning. Matching hat with ruching detail. Wonderful outfit but has faded with age. Underneath white cotton petticoat with pin tuck and lace detail around hem (okay but has some rust marks and holes). White cotton lace edge bloomers with lace edge (very good).
Fine cream pointelle socks (very good) Original black boots (poor) accessories turquoise earrings, gold watch on chain and gold framed opera glasses. All in all a very pleasing on the eye outfit. This doll ticks alot of boxes for me as an ex fashion designer, she is a beautiful large Fashion doll that is beautifully dressed in haute couture clothes of the day.
