OVERVIEW: This pretty lady has a perfect glazed porcelain shoulderhead. She has a different hair style that includes molded bows and a braid. She has an antique cloth body with perfect china limbs. She is wearing sewn-on unders and a nice cotton dress. Layaway is always an option but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:

HEAD: Her china shoulderhead is perfect with no damage or repairs. She has an unusual hair style that includes three small molded bows and a braid that encircles the top of her head. In back she has a double layered row of vertical curls. Her ears are exposed. Factory Imperfections: a tiny speckle on her chin and some tiny bisque bumps on the shoulderplate - insignificant. Signs of Wear: No rubs to her perfect face, just minor paint wear in her hair. Very nice!

BODY: I am only able to examine small areas of her body, because her sewn-on “unders” nearly cover it completely. It is a stitch jointed antique cloth body with perfect china limbs. The cloth portion is a heavy woven cotton. Her china arms are long and slender. Her china legs have painted pink bows at the knees and wonderful molded green boots with side buttons and pink tassles.

CLOTHES: She wears a nice red and cream cotton dress that closes with buttons and hooks and eyes. The collar is decorated with hand-stitched embroidery. Underneath, her body is completely covered with her sewn-on unders, made of a thin tan polished cotton. I did un-stitch one shoulder to examine her shoulderplate and body. She has a bodice with full sleeves, and a half-slip and bloomers that are trimmed with lace. There is also a partial slip stitched directly onto her bloomers.
