Completely original with her fine quality, heavy fully jointed, black composition body with separate balls at shoulders, hips, elbows and knees and jointed wrists.
She is wearing antique cotton pantalettes, matching antique cotton sundress and darling white boots with molded button detail and is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips, no hairlines or repairs, (fingers on one hand have been repaired long ago, upper wood arm has old repaired split, eyes a bit faded) and no odors as she is from a smoke free home.
