I hate the flowery hyperbole that often is in these auctions. Therefore, just a simple description. This is an adorable 15 black doll, unknown maker. She is tightly strung, ready to display sitting or standing. Hair, eyes, head, body are original, clothes are not.
The head is original to the body. The ears are not pierced. The open mouth has 4 teeth. She has set antique glass brown eyes, original to body. As so many of these dolls do, she has a dimple in her chin.
The paint is missing from the middle of the right eyebrow. It has been backlit, no hairlines noted. She has her original black curly mohair wig.
It is a fragile, should not be removed from head. It is complete and the cracks in the cap are not a problem unless you try to remoe it. There is a silver beaded headpiece. The parts are all original. There is the usual scuffing.
The tips of the right 3rd and 5th fingers are broken off. The paint on the tip of the 2nd one has a tiny chip but the finger is intact. The right 3rd toe also has a chip. The upper legs are wood, stick legs.They do not have the carved ball on top. She is wearing what appears to be a vintage well made homemade yellow cotton dress with black polka dots.
There is some lace trim around the shoulder pieces. There is fading on the front and the back --looks to me like someone may have spilt some bleach on it.
I bought her in this dress and it looks so good I left it. I added yellow cotton socks and antique reproduction black shoes.
PLEASE ASK IF YOU WANT MORE PHOTOS OF AN AREA. I will try with my limited photography skills. I use plastics that would normally go in the recycling bin for light weight packing. When appropriate, they have been washed and air dried.
The packing materials may not look pretty but they will keep the doll safe, and helps me decrease use of new plastics. PLEASE ASK FOR INVOICE PRIOR TO PAYING.
