Old Keeneye Composition/cloth Marie Antoinette Boudoir Bed Doll Wig Dress Shoes:
From my collection of Marie-Antoinettes. Wonderful composition and cloth, cotton stuffed Keeneye boudoir doll posing as the last French queen, in elaborate very well made aqua jacquard satin & silk chiffon dress, in stockings and shoes, with antique handfan and mohair wig with feathers. She is about 33" long (including tall hair-do).
Please study pictures, they describe the best ( scroll down to make sure that you see all 12 of them!).
Doll is in great (antique) shape, never restored face. However eyelashes are mostly gone, minor damage to compo chest area only seen if doll is naked. Both hands are crazing, but solid, not crumbling, not flaking off. Cloth body is very clean. There is one small in-seam hole about 1" long in right ankle area, not seen of course with stockings on.
Dress is slightly age-soiled, has few irregular shape holes in front under waistline, not too bad, as they are well hiding in folds. Chiffon cape has few darker stains in rear, could be washable, did not try. Stockings have many small holes along the seams, but recently washed, very clean. Stiffened cheese-cloth "crinoline" goes under the dress shaping it up. This doll has unusually small feet unlike typical dolls of this kind. These shoes fit her well, they are so tiny. Handfan is wood (not plastic!) and lace, but fake (would not open/close). Real mohair wig is beautiful but slightly age-yellowed,among locks thread is shown in couple places,not bad. Headpiece is sewn-on (not glued) and is off center to the right but I think it is intentional.
Doll obviously shows age, butclean, with slight "vintage smell". Never around pets. PLEASE STUDY PICTURES, they describe the best. QUESTIONS WELCOME.We ship 5 days a week same or next day on received (cleared) payment. We do accept returns within 3 days.8.75%sales tax forCalifornia buyers.
