Her headpiece is trimmed with pale pink flowers. Although she is showing her age, she is still in very good condition at 62 years old.
She is still wearing her engagement ring, and garter on her right leg. Her shoes are original but badly stretched out. The only thing that may not be original is her slip.
It looks like it has either been added, or the original may have been modified to give more fluff to her gown?? Not sure what the original slip looked like but this one has a strip of lace sewn only halfway around the inside which tells me it has been changed or modified in some way. Also I searched very carefully for flaws and found two small holes in the tulle, one in her gown and one in her veil.They are hard to find, especially on the skirt as it is buried in the pleats. There is also a streak of something on the tulle that appears to be some kind of substance that dried on it.
(See picture) It looks like it would come off if carefully soaked or sponged, but I didn't try it. It is not really noticeable and is located on the lower right side slightly toward the back of the dress.
All in all, this doll seems to be in very good condition for her age, and would make a beautiful addition to any collection! Feel free to message me with any questions.
