It has a fabulous large pink bow in the back!Under her dress Amy wears newer lace-trimmed pantaloons or bloomers with a drawstring at the waist. She wears cream-colored socks and black vintage shoes. Amy has the most gorgeous blonde mohair wig with lots of sausage curls and curly bangs. This is a vintage wig and retains its original golden clips on both sides. Her pate is a quality replacement. She likes to wear her favorite pink ribbon bow in her hair.Amy May’s exact condition is as follows: she has NO cracks, hairlines or repairs to her bisque head. She has a few short scratches at her forehead that doNOT detract and are covered by her wig. She has three tiny wig pulls at the back and side of her head. Her composition and wood ball-jointed body has some wear, particularly at the joints, and both knees have repairs. One lower leg appears to be a replacement but it is an antique. Amy has wear to her hands, a crack to the palm of one hand and two fingers have been re-glued. Her body’s finish appears to be original, but the finish is scuffed and has cracking. Her dress is without issue; with the exception of a loose snap, it is in perfect shape. Her lace-trimmed pantaloons are without issue, as are her socks. The shoes have different colored linings, but otherwise match each other. One of the clips in her wig has discolored the mohair in that area. Her sleep eyes work well and her eye wax is perfect.
