This little Steiner doll stands 14 tall, with a bisque socket head with a serious but delightful expression and a gorgeous face, on a beautiful, original wood and composition body. An appropriate short, black curly mohair wig adorns her head, with her original cardboard pate. She has her original 5 piece composition body with fully jointed arms and legs, pierced ears, but no earrings.
This La Parisien doll is indicative of the longer fingers than most of other Steiner hands which were often short. She has brown stationary paperweight eyes, with inner eye accents, finely painted dark eyelashes, dark brown feathered eyebrows, and lightly accented nostrils and lips. She has an open mouth bearing four front teeth. Its time to make off with this treasure before someone else snatches her up!! Markings- Her head is marked - A.
7, La Parisien, SGDG A 7 (incised). By Dorothy, Elizabeth and Evelyn Coleman.She wears a white eyelet dress with shoulder cuff overlay, puffy sleeves gathered at the wrist line and a scallopped hem line. Her waist has a pretty light pink sash. She retains her original white cotton pantilooms, skirt and slip and she wears white leather shoes with steel buckles and cotton white socks.
She has no hairlines, cracks or restorations to her bisque head. Her bisque is a smooth dark brown color. She does have a slight rub on the tip of her nose, probably from being held often by her owner child.I believe her stringing is original and in good shape with good elasticity. Her composition is excellent with only minor wear at the back neckline and back of the leg joints.
Her hands are generally excellent, however, there is a break in the composition of her right forefinger. Her costume is appropriate and in excellent condition without tears or melting.
