This doll was made for the French market which is where l found her originally. Apart from two minute chips above her left eye, she has a perfect bisque head of excellent quality and colouring, open close eyes with both eyelids intact and pierced ears. She has at some time had a pair of thick eyelashes applied, but although they shade her eyes a little they look very nice. Her real hair wig is a replacement  but suits her well. Her body is a Jumeau one and has had quite a bit of wear. There are a couple of finger repairs (not that obvious) and some repaint to some bits of the body including hands and the usual playwear means scuffed toes etc. Apart from all that it is a good body and she is a very attractive doll with a gentle expression and a very 1920s look about her. She measures 30 inches and dates around 1910.
