Milliner's Model Circa 1840
A pleasing, 10 1/2" blue-eyed beauty that tells us she is from the year 1840 with her rare, hairdo that falls below her exposed ears and travels back to be tied in a braided bun.  She has wood lower arms and legs, and her shoes are painted yellow slippers.  Her sheer plaid summer dress and her cotton undergarments are original.  Although the original surface of her paper mache shoulderplate does have some crazing from age, her overall condition is unusually nice.

Wax Child with Sleep Eyes

22 1/2"
Amazing Original Presentation

A cherubic face in wax with brown enamel sleep eyes, endearing, tight blond mohair curls, a turned shoulder head, early arms of tan leather and separately stitched fingers, a firm, horse hair stuffed, cloth body with jointing at the shoulders, hips and knees caused by extra stitching, and sewn in pink leather boots with side button detail and lower legs of pink and cream striped stockings. 
This of course is a continuation of the wonderful rose cotton costume she wears that features repeated pleating, ruffling and lace detail.  Her cloth hat has age, but is not original to her.  Equally impressive as her outer garment are her crisp, original undergarments, all with matching trim and starched to perfection when she was made.
She comfortable sits as well as stands
, and when laying down, she goes to sleep!
