This is a charming English Poured Wax Doll. Her wax shoulder-head, arms and legs are in excellent condition. She is wearing 5 layers of antique/original clothing and she retains her original linen body. Layaway is always an option but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:
Head: Her poured wax shoulder-head is in excellent condition with no cracks, crazing or chips. She retains her full head of baby-fine blond mohair, individually inserted into her wax head. (That always amazes me!) She has large pale blue inset glass eyes. Her shoulderplate has quite a lot of anatomical detail.
Body: Her original linen body has poured wax arms and legs. Her limbs are in superb condition - clean and perfect with all fingers present and highly detailed feet. There are stains on her torso and the cloth on one arm is split.
Clothes: She is wearing 5 layers of all-antique clothing that could be original. Her dress is lightweight wool with tucks on the bodice that come to a point at the waist. It has a full skirt and it closes with hooks and eyes. Underneath, she wears a long chemise, a cotton summer slip, a wool winter slip and pantaloons. Everything is in excellent condition and everything fits perfectly. She also wears short knit silk stockings and brown leather shoes (very fragile). Finally, she wears a sweet (fragile) antique straw hat covered with ruching and bows.
