Dolls And
SEO509: Pretty Papier Machenew

What a lovely, outstanding doll! She resembles a French doll! This beautiful, all original Sonneburg papier mache/composition doll stands 24" tall. Original cloth body is sawdust or excelsior stuffed. Lower composition legs and arms. Outstanding gray paperweight eyes accented with delicate, painted upper and lower lashes. Rose blushed cheeks, coral colored painted closed mouth. Wonderful painted eyebrows. Lovely original blonde mohair wig with bangs or fringe and soft curls which fall to her shoulders. Paint worn on fingertips chipped on a few fingers on each hand, not visible from the upper side--they look quite natural. Shoulder plate is irregularly cut, but this appears to be in the making and not damage. There is, however, water damage to one leg, which has caused the composition finish to crack.. Toes are missing from the same leg. This is concealed by her original cotton socks.Dressed in layers of pristine, crisp original cotton underclothing which includes a full chemise and half slip. Her magnificent original semi sheer dotted dress is accented with pink ribbon at lace accented sleeves and neckline. Wonderful tucks accent the bodice. Silk rosettes at neckline match rosettes on her bonnet, which matches her dress. A remarkable doll which displays beautifully and will be an excellent addition to a doll collection!
