Her face is matte with red lips and gorgeous blue-green eyes. Her eyelashes are intact and eyes open and close. She has blush on her cheeks and on both her knees. Her elbows and knees are jointed.Her left knee bends nicely and her right knee bends with more effort but not as far. There is a small mark on her bottom (see photo) that I believe may have been a factory flaw that was touched up (as noticed under 10x loupe). There are no cracks, splits, or odors.
She holds a pose nicely. Her tagged aqua taffeta dress is vibrant (no fading) with all 4 square snaps intact.
Her half slip and underpants are in excellent condition with great elastic. Her cream satin coat has some age in color including some fading of the bow by the neck. But the lining is as vibrant as her dress. The gold edge of the lace on the coat sleeves is loose, but it is still there. There is a small hole on the back of her right sleeve and a small pulled thread on the back of the coat.The fastener on the coat is intact. No spots or stains noted on her outfit.
Her nylons are in good condition. On her right foot there are two small round holes in the nylons, one by her big toe and the other just above. The elastic has stretched, but there is still some stretch to the elastic. The gold paper covering one of the soles is in fair condition.
