Relisted due to a layaway falling through. Gorgeous 17 China Doll with very rare fancy hairstyle. I believe she may be by Conta & Boehme but Im not 100% sure. Her head and shoulderplate are in good condition but there is a tiny nip to the tip of her nose.If you choose to have this touched up, I know an amazing restorer. Her clothes are antique and her black cape has some wear and loss to the fabric. Her lace shawl is gorgeous. Her limbs are antique too.
I believe her arms may have been from two different dolls though as one has more of a pink tint than the other. Her body is antique but may not be as old as she is. Very rare and lovely doll.
