Her wardrobe and trousseau items are showcased in a beautiful antique CARRYING CASE in an unusual oval shape made of a patterened light French blue colored paper covered cardboard with GILDED TRIM and its original brass handle! The top of the case is embellished with lovely antique Victorian DIE CUTS including a center portrait of a sweet little blonde-haired girl dressed in blue, similarly to the doll inside, and two other die cuts of hands offering colorful flowers!
The case has some age wear, including some minor paper loss and a place on the lid front where there is a small piece missing, but overall it makes a very CHARMING DISPLAY to showcase this sweet little doll and her trousseau items! The case opens to reveal its cream interior with a separate beautiful antique ecru lace covered satin pillow embellished dainty SILK ROSETTES and ruched edging, the perfect venue to display such a fancy little Miss!
The doll itself is as sweet as she can be, with an ALL BISQUE body and measuring a DIMINUTIVE 4 1/2 tall with her original DARK BROWN wig made of human hair with braided trim, painted matching dark single stroke eyebrows, painted INTAGLIO BLUE eyes. Chubby little rosy cheeks, and sweet deep red UPTURNED LIPS with a subtle pouty expression! Her all bisque body is STRING JOINTED at the upper arms and legs, and we love her CHUBBY BODY with matched parts including her precious little CUPPED HANDS, and the adorable painted white RIBBED STOCKINGS with blue trim and sweet little painted black MARY JANE style shoes, albeit with some paint wear! With no apparent markings, but attributed to the KESTNER FIRM. One at the top of each of the doll's chubby little thighs as well as natural divets or indentations on her bisque done in the manufacturing process when the bisque was pulled from the mold, but.
The doll's head is free of damage and in good condition. Considering the fact this cutie is about a CENTURY OLD!
