This very much looks like a court gown and of the grandeur due her fame and position in society. She was married for many years and had 7 children (5 of whom she outlived) and frequently appeared pregnant on stage. She is holding a bouquet of flowers which unfortunately hides the fact that over the years she lost a hand. The prestigious factory of William Goebel as referenced. On page 60 in Lorrin's Half Doll Book Volume 6.
This is a very collectible doll. Presented in fittingly opulent splendor. Size: Doll: 4 1/2" high Full Height: 13 1/2". Almost all the items I list are antique or vintage.
I always try to point out the flaws but it is also to be assumed that unless it says "mint" that there will be signs of age. I try to answer same day as received and I'm friendly.
I hope you will visit me often as I will attempt to add things frequently. I know I have things that will work for millinery, doll clothes, clothing design, handbags, fabric design reference and lamp shades among many more.
