I first became familiar with Leone's beautiful dolls when I bought 27 boxes of her doll parts. Since then I have put together about 50 of Leone'sdolls. Ibought this doll complete from the lady that sold me the doll boxes. Iwent into my doll dress closet andfound a pretty fuzzie bowties on voile cotton dress. This dress is an empire style and trimmed with dainty white lace. It also has a matching slip.
Her body is jointed at her wrist, elbows, arms, legs and knees. I didn't find any problems with the porcelain. She has brown eyes & eyelashes. This is a very nicely made doll. As far as I know, Leone made this doll.
This is a beautiful doll, I'm guessing she is a reproduction German? doll head. She is 18" tall. She is dressed in avoile &lace dress. She has bloomers and a slip on.There are noshoes and socks. She has a nicebrownunglued wig. I have big bun style wigs if you want to change wigs.
Packing a porcelain doll takes me about an hour. I try to box the arms and legs and head. Also I use lots of bubble wrap. I put in another box & even another box. So far all my dolls have been delivered unbroken. I also purchase the shipping insurance offers.
