Head and body are Expertly Hand-painted and signed Repro By Glenna M. Jointed at neck, shoulders and hips. Stringing is a little loose, her head and legs are floppy which allows her to sit and her head to easily tilt very easily.
The legs will not hold a pose but they will stay straight if you stand her up on a stand. Her arms will hold a pose.
I believe her Brown Side Glancing eyes are acrylic but they are quite beautiful with dark squiggly lines in them. The photos do not do them justice. Wearing: Hand-made Cream Lace Dress with floral trim, matching hair bow, Slip, pantaloons (elastic is no good in them), stockings as long as her legs, an shoes. Synthetic wig with big sausage curls.
Wig and clothes can always be changed to suit your taste if desired. They do not have a foul odor in my opinion.This doll is from a collection owned and created by the late Glenna Matthews of Kansas City Mo. And has one of her signatures, Glenna M.
Or Glenna or Glenna Matthews. The dolls are dated in the early 2000s.Glenna was a student of the well renowned doll artist and maker ThuTam Freeman. I believe it is from a Seeley mold and is either a reproduction of an antique doll or an artist sculpt inspired by antique dolls. Please examine photos closely and feel free to ask questions.
