This is a spectacular example of a poured wax over composition face doll. She is English or French or German but such a fine example with what probably is original clothes. She dates to the 1840-60's. She has a leather body, one knee is kinked but other than that I don't see any problems. She has her original blond wig, a great hat that came with her and looks like it could be original and the wonderful silk gown that is shredding a little but is mostly stable. I think her beauty and her clothing make her an outstanding very early doll. Every now and then I think step out of my comfort zone and buy something that is just so beautiful and has such great clothes. (Note the pocket on her dress.)
