This gorgeous French Fashion Poupee is outstanding! She wears her fabulous original gown and she retains her glorious original wig! Her bisque is mint and flawless. Her kid body is in excellent condition and has desirable bisque arms. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are all the details:
Head: Her bisque head is perfect with no damage. There are no factory imperfections or signs of wear - a very fine bisque head. She is an early swivel neck circa 1870. Her serene expression has a hint of sadness. She has the most incredible eyes - pale icy blue with deep spiraling. She has narrow multi-stroked brows and her beautifully rendered lips are shaded and accented. She retains her original mohair wig with long curls and a braid holding them in place. This wig is especially fine! It is attached to her original cork pate with the original nails.
Body: Her original white kid body is in excellent aged condition - firm and upright. I see a few stitches added to one gusset, otherwise there is nothing to report. She has beautiful long bisque arms, reaching above the elbow. The end is chipped off on one finger.
Clothes: She is wearing a very elegant antique gown that is entirely hand-stitched. It features diagonal tucks on the bodice and cartridge pleating at the waist. On the sleeves we see rosettes and fringe trim. It closes with hook and eye closures and a drawstring at the neckline. The dress has some age wear, mainly under the arms from her stand, but the dress is fully lined and holding up very well for its age. It displays beautifully! Her hat is matching silk, and has a lot of melting. Underneath, she wears a matched set of unders - half-slip, camisole and bloomers. She also wears silk over-the-knee stockings. Her leather shoes have heels and are custom-made for her.
