Sweet little girl. Approximately 15" tall.
All I can see of markings is "Special".
I can not see any chips or cracks......do not have a "black light" to check for hairlines.
Although body covers the shoulder head......I think I can feel a small chip on front edge of shoulder plate.
She has sleep eyes......light rub one cheek.
Her body is jointed cloth......good age stained condition.
One bisque arm has glue residue where it has been glued back to upper arm cloth.....and the glue is all over one hand/fore arm.
Bisque arms are good....no chips.
Her mohair wig is loose....seems a tad big.....but maybe when secured it will fit better. Am not going to secure......as eyes have tissue to protect in shipping.
She wears a home made antique gown.......her slip and pantaloons are more recent.
Old knit bonnet has flaws. Displays very well. AS IS
