VC9020GC: Georgian Wooden
This is an outstanding early example of a Georgian III wooden doll, dating circa 1760-1790. She measures an impressive 27" tall. Her elaborate dress, which appears to be original or at least the fabric is contemporary to the doll, has been stitched closed and we were unable to completely undress her. She has been examined with a black light and under 30X magnification and there is No repaint. There is original varnish over the lips. She came from a private collection in England where she was for 40 years and may have been purchased from Heather Bond.Her beautiful face is expertly detailed and colors are still vivid. Period or original human hair wig in a strawberry blonde color. Please examine all my photos, as they are part of the description. Some wear to shoulder plate, mostly to the back where the paint has flaked. Paint wear to each cheek. Typical marks or wear to face and ridge of nose, beautiful rich brown eyes.Slender, long well carved arms and fingers, all appear to be in good order, aside from some scratches to the paint. Paint wear to legs, joints work well. Her pantaloons appear to be a more recent addition. Lovely elaborate tulle lace ruffle accents the straw hat which sits upon her head. An amazing example of an early doll and her large size makes her very striking!
