This is a gorgeous china lady, circa 1870. She is referred to as Spill Curl, and she is the more desirable version with the molded black band and Café-au-lait hair color. She has a perfect china head, vintage cloth body with long china arms, a wonderful antique dress and layers of unders. She also has an antique walking suit that has much wear. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me to discuss terms prior to purchase. Here are the details:
Head: Her glazed porcelain shoulderhead is perfect with no cracks, chips, or hairlines. She has tiny finger curls that create an all-over tousled effect, spilling onto her shoulders. There is a short molded black band across the top. She has café-au-lait colored hair and her eyebrows are a perfect match. She has blue eyes with no outline, tiny highlight dots on the left (as you face her) and highly placed pupils. Her lips have a much darker red line to separate them. She is thought to be produced by ABG.
Body: Her vintage cloth body has a narrow waist and wide hips. It is reinforced at the waist with wide brown tape. She has long china limbs with spoon-like hands, and bisque lower legs.
Clothes: She is wearing a wonderful antique red on cream cotton dress with black velvet trim. It is of the period and fits as if it was made for her. It has some fading, but it is simply a great dress. She also has a black taffeta two-piece walking suit. The long jacket is heavily trimmed with beading. It is too fragile for her to wear – but she has owned it for a very long time and it is staying with her. Underneath, she has layers of nice unders. Her first slip is really two layers – an all-lace overlay with sheer cotton underlayer. Her next slip is alternating insertion lace and cotton. These slips are made of antique fabrics and lace. Her antique bloomers appear to be original.
