Her bisque appears to have no condition issues after careful examination. She has deep brown set eyes (not sleep eyes) and is wearing a black human hair wig over a plaster pate. Her composition body has a belly ding but, aside from this, it appears to be in very good condition, with all her fingers and toes accounted for.
I find no repaint or repairs. Her stringing is not very tight. She has lovely pierced ears with earrings.
Her antique green velvet and silk clothing is beautiful, but not original to the doll. She is a real find for those looking for the rare and unusual, and she displays fabulously. From a non-smoking environment, of course. Photo props not included: DOLL STAND. IMPORTANT: Besides the noteworthy issues mentioned above, EXPECT any antique doll (bisque/composition/leather/china/wood) to ALSO have: (1) SIGNS OF AGE - for example: toned/crazed/chipped composition, minor wig pulls, loss of "hair" lashes on bisque heads (if they had them), not-so-tight stringing, etc.(2) MINOR CONSERVATION WORK by previous owners/collectors - for example: reset eyes in most cases! , repairs to wig, repairs to clothing, touch-ups on composition/finish/paint, etc.
Any MAJOR issues -- hairline crack, total repaint, etc. - would be itemized above, but these normal age/conservation details are not. They are to be expected.I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER. If you live in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, or U.
These countries have more flexible Priority Post options, but it depends on the size and value of the item you're purchasing. And provided the items can travel safely in the same box.
Opens in a separate window/tab. As often happens, it's the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us. Not knowing what they're doing.
And then, when they realize they've ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective. BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT..
I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of. But these are antique and vintage dolls -- so, please understand that they won't be in brand-new condition. There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body. Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls.
