Condition: Her face has considerable repaint . There are some cracks on her forehead one above her left eye brow. There is paint wear to her arms and legs. Her hands do have crude repairs, upper arms have old tape between the paint area going to the cloth part. Both upper arms are reinforced with newer fabric over the old. Also old tape between the painted area and the  cloth part on the upper legs.  Her right ankle has been taped. Antique garments do have age discolorations.  Body recover has a tear in the front. She still is a Treasure in the need of preservation  and deserves it as she has  been around for a long time. Unusual large size doll by this artist.

  1. Hi,Dixie-
    Isn't it always remarkable when a doll this old survives? I had a question I don't know if you'll be able to answer;do you know if it was a normal occurence when she painted her dolls without the sausage curls? Unless I'm not seeing clearly,it looks like she just feathered the hair. Just curious about anything Izannah!
    Warm Regards,

  2. Even though she's been repainted, there's a special sweetness to her face!

  3. She painted her dolls with quite a bit of variation. Lots of short wispy hair styles, which I like just as much as the sausage curls!

  4. I agree, Robin. I would love to see her in person.
