Beautiful French Fashion Poupee with body by Gesland. She has a perfect pale bisque head and shoulderplate. She is fully dressed in a lovely costume that was created for her from old fabrics. Layaway is always an option but please contact me to discuss terms before purchase. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque head is beautiful and her pale bisque is very smooth. She has icy-blue paperweight eyes with black outlines, long lashes and lightly feathered brows. She wears a gorgeous long curly custom-made mohair wig. One shoulder is marked FG and the other carries her size number 0. Her head is also marked 0 at the rear rim. She retains one original earring, and wears a sea shell pendant suspended on a velvet ribbon. Examination: some light speckling and nothing else to report – no other factory imperfections and no signs of wear. She is lovely.

Body: Her body was made by Gesland. It is a plump lady-like body, with a stockinet covering over a wire frame. She has slender bisque arms and legs. The toes on one foot are expertly repaired.

Clothes: She is wearing a pretty silk costume – not quite as dark as it appears – more of a deep emerald color. It is liberally trimmed with antique black decorative flat trim, antique black lace and fancy antique black edging. This well-made dress has a matching bonnet as well as matching shoes with heels. Underneath, she wears an antique chemise (sewn-on) and pantaloons of old fabrics.
