German made for the French market, this sweet 1894 doll measures about 15 1/2” high. She is still on her original body with the long thighs in good condition with all fingers and toes. What’s even nicer is that she still is wearing her original costume with the original under garments underneath. Her bisque is nicely painted with big, beautiful glass eyes still on the rockers so she can sleep with all the original wax on the lids. She has a darling, inquisitive look, very sweet.
The bisque is without chips or cracks and her original stringing is overall fine so she can hold any pose well. I’m a sucker for an all original doll, and that’s what I liked about her, that she still had her original outfit. It consists of regional style dress of lilac velvet lower skirt with a sewn-in front vest and metallic trim. A cotton ruched bodice with puffy sleeves with a lace insert and trimmed apron. So cute! Under it she wears her original half-slip with pantaloons, long white cotton socks with adorable black leather shoes with the buckles and shoe strings. She has an antique brown human hair wig that completes her look.
In good condition with just a little bit of paint wear around the joints of the body, only seen when she's undressed. On the back of her head 1894, AM 1 1/2 DEP Made in Germany. She has had a bath, as well as her wig was hand cleaned and all of her clothing has been cleaned and pressed, although not all the age stains came out in the wash, she is clean so she is ready for play or display.
