about antique: Wonderful bisque overall with great facial painting, multi-stroke light brown eyebrows, open mouth with four upper teeth. She has her original blue glass sleep eyes with full lid wax. Original plaster pate with original blonde (somewhat sparse) wig. She has a lovely chunky body with well defined hands, shirred pink stockings and black one strap shoes. There is a mold flaw on her left index finger. I thought it may be a repair, but nothing shows up under blacklight. There is a re-glue on her right ankle which is not seen by the naked eye. I picked it up with a black light and magnification. No clothing on this girl ~ her prior owner preferred to display her as she is shown.
