24″ ANTIQUE HEADED ARMAND MARSEILLE 390 ON REPRODUCTION BODY – DRESSED BEAUTIFULLY
This doll looks stunning and is a German antique Armand Marseille 390 bisque head on a lovely ball jointed composition reproduction body. She stands in height 24″ and displays beautifully.
The bisque socket head is free from damage and clearly incised on the back of the head. She has her original brown glass sleeping eyes with her eyelid wax intact, multi stroked eyebrows and delicately stroked upper and lower eyelashes as well as the usual red accent dot in the corner of each eye and her nostrils. She has an open mouth with upper teeth and a little dimple in her chin. Her cheek blushing is lovely and there are no marks to make mention of. Her wig is replaced and is a quality auburn wig with ringlets.
Her reproduction body is in beautiful condition and strung well.
She comes wearing a gorgeous hand made reproduction drop waisted frock in a beautiful bronze colour with a black over lace front with a bow and buckle. It has little pearl beads down the front and ties with ribbons at the sleeves. Underneath she has a cream petticoat trimmed with lace and matching pantaloons and a lovely cream bonnet. She also has black stockings and black patent leather like tie up shoes. Her beautiful outfit represents at least $100 of her overall cost.
There is nothing to do with this doll other than display her and she really has a beautiful face.
The head has already been stuffed with tissue to protect her eyes in transit and as such the pate and wig will need to be re-glued which is an easy job to do and I can advise how to do this if required.
