Features:The following Rare Antique Wax Lady Doll Old Rococo ClothingisAll Original. Her previous address prior to my purchasing her was in Spain. Not sure if she originatedin Spainbut her clothing is that of the 1700s-early 1800s most likely during the Rococo period. Beautiful original clothing. Her tightly wound curls may have always been white or possibly blond. She originally held in her left hand a bird or similar which would have been connected to a wire that protrudes from her left palm. This lady has a delicately molded face and hands. She has a saintly expression. Quite beautiful. The wax has mellowed but was probably never a tan or pink flesh color. Her attached (sewn on) clothing is all original with flower applica on frilly pink dressand dried flowers in her creamy white hat, white pantaloon, stockings and black cloth shoes. Her body is of cloth that looks similar to muslin fabric and filled with what feels like sawdust. She most likely was not meant as a play doll but could have been under a glass dome for a long period of time. She could have possibly been a fashion doll since the rich of that time would request the latest fashions to be sent from a fashion center and these new fashions would arrive on mannikins (often with wax features). Yourmore likely to gain more from the picturesthan I can explain it.
Size:Thehead to toes is15 inches (45 cm)in Height and the Hat adds another inch approximately.
Condition:Used / maybe displayed for awhile. Please look at the photographs closely to determine condition. Not certain what the pink (paint?) in the first photograph is from. Surface rubs or scratches. Cracks on wax eyelids and corner of eye (the corner of the eye may be just how wax was applied over the eye instead of a crack) and 1 crack on forehead (see left profile). Uneven wax in forehead. Repair to thumb. Missing whatever was in her hand which was attached to hand by the exposed metal loop. Wax has some mellowing like tallow was part of wax mixture. Hair a bit hap-hazard. Stain on the underside of pink dress and spots on pantaloons. See pictures as part of the description. Please see photographs and / or video and ask prior to offerding any questions you may have regarding this item.
