OVERVIEW: This sweet French Fashion lady is wearing her very fine original wig. She has perfect bisque, and she is fully dressed in clothing that appears to be all antique – dress, chemise, slip, bloomers, stockings and shoes. She is likely by Gaultier. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me to discuss terms before purchase. Here are the details:
HEAD: She has a swivel neck, and her head and shoulderplate are perfect with no cracks, chips, or hairlines. She is marked 0 at the rear rim. She may be marked FG on her shoulder, but I do not wish to remove the leather to look for markings. Her original blond mohair wig is still nailed to her original cork pate. The wig is uncombed and in the original set, with short curls on top and long curls in back. There is a fancy pink ribbon decoration on both sides of her head. Factory Imperfections: on very close inspection, she has a slightly uneven eye cut (no damage), and there are little shrinkage lines at both ear piercings. Signs of Wear: None!
BODY: Her French all-kid lady body is in good condition. There is some settling of the sawdust, and someone painted her hands. There is just one small patch between her legs and the body is sound with no leaking.
CLOTHES: I believe that all of her clothing is antique. She is wearing a very sweet pique day dress that buttons all the way down the front. It has a wide lace-trimmed collar and lace trim down the front. There is one very large pleat in the back. Underneath, she wears a chemise, half-slip and bloomers trimmed with wide lace. She has tan fancy knit stockings and pink slip-on shoes. There is a small discoloration on one sleeve of her dress, otherwise everything is in excellent aged condition.
