Her head is a socket bisque, her jointed body is composition. She has glass weighted eyes, blue in color in good working condition.
And is glued to her head so I didn't try to remove. She has a very cute "hairdo" two braids and each one twisted around itself on each side of her head, not sure what this is called either! As you can see in the photos. She has an open mouth and shows her 4 front teeth, has a cute dimple in her chin, painted bushy eyebrows and painted eyelids, pierced earlobes.She has her hands with all fingers and they still have their red lines. Her body paint seems original, no repairs that I know of.
I took all her clothes to check her body but did not check her feet since I didn't want to mess around her socks and shoes, but everything looks good. Her back is marked with a number 2. Her dress seems period appropriate in terms of style, but fabric looks too white and in good condition, so probably not from the doll's time period. Shoes and socks should be original.Please see the photos for details and read the condition description and do ask if you need any more close ups, or details, I will be very happy to send them. There wasn't enough photo space for this beauty! I do try to give as many details as possible and to be as accurate as I can, but you might want more information, so please reach out.
