From my late mother's estate. She purchased it at an antique shop on the shores of Lake Superior in the late 1980s. Doll is in general good condition. Some fraying in front of dress. It looks liketwo teeth chipped out.She bought it without shoes, so those are new with her.Jointed kid body with bisque head and arms. Original clothes (except shoes.) Brown sleep eyes. open mouth.Clearly marked Floradora in bisque on back of neck. The name "Floradora " comes from a popular musical comedy play that opened in London in 1899, later in New York, and then elsewhere, with revivals for decades. In the play, "Floradora" was the name of an island in the Phillippines . A big attraction in the play was a group of 6 beautiful young women, called the Floradora Sextette, who performed a song called "Tell me Pretty Maiden". These were the inspiration for the Armand Marseille Floradora dolls. See photos for condition. Sold as is.
