She has a perfect bisque socket head, with big brown sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, an open mouth with four upper teeth, a mark on her lower lip characteristic of the “Santa,” a slightly dimpled chin, and pierced ears. She stands at 15” on her original fully-jointed wood and composition body, and wears her original blond human hair wig, styled in braids crossed over her head.
She wears an antique ensemble of a white cotton blouse with tucks on the bodice, lace trim at the sleeves and collar, and a tiny antique gold-filled bar pin with a pink gem at the collar, and a navy blue cotton skirt with white dots and a black and white floral pattern ribbon at the waist and above the hem. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton full slip and pair of pantaloons, both with lace trim. On her feet are a pair of black knit socks and vintage black leather shoes. On her head is a vintage straw hat decorated with faux flowers, and in her ears are a pair of blue glass and faux pearl bead earrings.
MARKS: S H 1249 / DEP / 6 / Germany [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Excellent! The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with perfect pale bisque and the most gorgeous modeling and painting. The original glass eyes sleep well, and are aligned well in the head, with beautiful color complementing her perfect features. The original wood and composition body retains much of its original shiny finish, with some areas of minor and expected age wear. The costume is wonderful, with minor age wear. Overall, this is a fabulous girl, bound to please!
