This doll measures about 23" tallbeing a "composition" shoulder head, hands with fingers intact, composition legs on cloth mama doll type body. There is a non-working crier in the back. Some wear, paint touch ups throughout, compo linechip under the right eye with some crazing throughout face, arms and legs with alittle built indirt/scuffs.I do not see anyserious damage on this doll beside the chip under her eye that may require a little composition restoration.Great character face with open and close blue tin sleepy eyes that work fine, painted lashes around the eyes with brush stroked brown orange brows to match her painted molded orange brown hair."Chuckles" has open molded mouth with two upper painted teeth. Paint loss on the lips requires a little paint restoration. There is a dimple in each cheek and wonderful blush on her cheeks.Doll wears I believe her original dress, slip and panties.
