13" Antique 1870s French Fashion Young Lady Cobalt Blue Eyes-original Mohair Wig For Sale
13" Antique 1870s FRENCH FASHION Young Lady Cobalt Blue Eyes-Original Mohair Wig
Beautiful & early, this lovely YOUNG LADY is 13" tall. This lovely FRENCH FASHION doll is from the 1870s, her perfect pale-bisque shoulder-head is incised "1." - most likely she was made by Barrois. On original kid-leather body with gusseted arms & straight legs; cobalt blue glass set eyes are original & factory-set, and she has her original mohair wig and cork pate.
No damage and no repair
Her sweet round face has finest painted lashes surround those gorgeous eyes under long thin feathered brows, kissable rosy cheeks, closed mouth, ears are pierced into the head, and her wheat-blonde mohair wig is in long braids wrapped around her head; body is sturdy & firmly stuffed, fingers are separately stitched, and there's only one old patch at left elbow.
Dressed for evening visiting or a trip to the theatre, the lady wears antique moire damask silk dress with cobalt-blue silk trim and tiny pink flower braid, with factory chemise, antique petticoat & pantalets, cotton knit socks and ankle-tie kid-leather French shoes with ribbon rosettes; from a non-smoking environment.
