This doll is seldom found! She is mold # 2000 made by Armand Marseille. She has perfect glowing bisque, and she wears a sweet costume of antique dress, matching antique unders and a fine antique straw hat. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque head is perfect with no damage or repairs. The quality of her bisque is extremely fine with a shiny glow and sharpest modeling of features. Her coloring is softly pink and her painting is neat and perfect. Her expression is very sad…perhaps the other dolls have been teasing her about her mis-matched paperweight-style eyes, although I find them to be a big part of her charm. She is marked 2000 / A.M. 3 DEP. Her antique blond mohair wig is likely original. Examination: light scratching on one iris, and an insignificant tiny faint rub. That’s it, this is a really fine bisque head!

Body: Her composition body has a long slender torso and wooden arms. A blacklight reveals repaint on the front of the torso and some inconspicuous overpaint on one lower arm and one lower leg. The remainder is original finish and the body is sturdy and sound.

Clothes: She wears a sweet antique red cotton dress with slightly dropped waist and lacy insert on the bodice. Underneath, she wears a full slip and bloomers made from matching fabric and lace. The dress and unders have no closures and are pinned shut. She also wears vintage knit stockings and tie shoes. Finally, she has a wonderful antique red straw hat with flower decoration. Everything is in very good aged condition.
