ANTIQUE FRENCH FASHION + TRUNK SET

Please note:100 photos have been taken to clearly show all details with any flaws at all and as many as will fit here are going online right now so please refresh this page later as close-ups of her undressed will be added next to show how her kid leather body has obviously been repaired over the years. More photos available upon request.

This very early Antique French Fashion doll with stunning blue eyes and long, wavy blonde hair (see all close-up photos) is 16 inches tall and her trunk is 13.5 inches wide, 10.5 inches high, 8.5 inches deep. Unmarked - most early model French dolls were not signed.

An exquisite French 16 inch tall Poupee with bisque shoulder head and gusseted kid leather body. The doll retains her original cork pate and golden blonde wig (see all close-up photos).

The doll has blue glass set eyes, closed mouth, a pale complexion and rosy cheeks, pierced ears and one beautiful earring is still intact.
Her elaborate costume includes a full length dress (see all the close-up photos for details), with layers and tucks, a matching hat with soft velvet trimming on the top and brim, a cream bodice, various underwear garments, socks.

She comes complete with her own Original metal clad over wood humpback trunk that has various compartments (see close-up photos for details) and a trousseau with lots of accessories, "French necessities", including a long-sleeved full length vivid blue dress with black flock and white trimming, and black edging along the hem, lined all along the hemline inside with netting.
The most amazing tiny kid leather gloves that are still attached together with thread (see close-up photos). Wonderful kid leather corsets. A cream lace-edged shawl. A fancily decorated bonnet with one ribbon, a warm, fringed knit shawl and co-ordinating crocheted wristlet purse - all in ecru and deep purply-plum colors. A chocolate brown semi-circular shawl edged in turquoise ric-rac with two turquoise tassels, a monogrammed handkerchief, the tiniest hair brush and mirror, a gilt three-pronged hair comb that still has one tiny turquoise decoration in it, opera viewers. Also a tiny black and red checkers set with board, "My Merry Dolly's Checker Board" (must have been added back in the 50's) was in the original trunk .
