Vintage Bisque Porcelain Doll Shay By Donna Rubert 31 Inches For SaleVINTAGE DONNA RUBERT DOLLAPPROXIMATELY 31 INCHES TALLMarked high up under wig (which is glued on):SHAYBy Rubert1992The Doll ArtworksI wrote the marks down so I could list them before I reglued the wig on. I always remove wigs because I have to know what I am
selling, and that there is no damage to the head. Because this is a modern doll, and not an antique, the wig has been reglued on.Yet these are her markings so you will know who she is.This looks a bit to me like an artist upgrade--she came to me from a very elegant home in San Francisco. The eyes and lashes
are remarkable and look more dramatic than I would expect; yet I am not extremely familiar with this Donna Rubert dolls so I am not
sure--this may be just the way she was originally produced. At any rate she has a very interesting expression, and when looking
at her, you have the feeling she is alive--the position of the eyes gives her a very realistic appearance.Her head turns side to side. Her eyes are fixed in place. Her mouth is a bit glossy and slightly open as if she is
about to tell us something....She has a very unusual body that is totally posable, all parts of it, as I have tried to show in the photos. Both arms
and legs have wires inside the soft parts, so that you can bend them any which way you prefer. She loves to sit but
of course can stand also, as I have tried to show in the pictures. This is a very dense and weighty body; doll alone weighs 7 lbs 4 oz.Her body is covered as if with a nylon stocking over the fabric components which appears to be part of her original construction at manufacture time, and is soft stuffed cloth under that for the upper arms and upper legs.The rest is bisque porcelain.There is no damage to bisque or fabric components of doll.Her wig is synthetic, is clean and neat but appears vintage and this is the way she came to me from San Francisco; I
have changed nothing about her, I thought she was just perfect.Her dress is very clean and pressed, and comes with matching pantaloons. She has sturdy child-size oxfords with laces
and waist high white infant tights that are a bit loose at the ankles, IMO. Pantaloons have been pinned over in the back as the elastic has quite a bit of give in it.I do thank you for visiting our sale and I ask that you please read everything below prior to placing your I START FROM THE PREMISE THAT YOUR PURCHASE HONORS ME.
