ARMAND MARSEILLE 390 ON REPRODUCTION BODY – 22″ HEIGHT
This doll is an antique headed German Armand Marseille 390 on a vintage reproduction body which is why she is priced cheaply.
The bisque socket head is free from damage and has lovely colouring. She has 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 her original blue glass sleeping eyes with eyelid wax and an open mouth with a row of teeth. Her cheeks are blushed beautifully and her markings are clear on the back of her head. Her pate and darker blonde wig are replacements and have been removed to stuff the head to protect the eyes in transit and an easy job to re-attach using PVA (water based glue).
She is on a vintage heavy composition mix body that is in lovely condition and strung well.
She comes wearing a vintage frock that has an apricot coloured satin material lining with an embroidered lace overlay trimmed with further lace and ribbon. She also has pantaloons that need new elastic, stockings and shoes.
This doll displays well and is quite heavy due to her body.
