This doll is a beauty! These rare dolls increase in value over the years with the rarity. This vintage doll's condition is new.

"This doll has been crafted of fine hand-painted fine bisque porcelain and wears an authentic turn-of-the-century gown of russet chiffon and shimmering lace adorned with satin ribbon roses and golden braid. Her matching chiffon hat is adorned with satin ribbon roses and ostrich plumes and she holds a lace-edged hankerchief to wipe the crystalline tear on her cheek."

For your safety, this doll will be wrapped in thick bubble wrap and a protective box. If you are overseas, you may bid if you have the doll shipped to a USA address. If you want this sent overseas directly, then we need you and your shipping address to be approved by us BEFORE you bid, please, as some countries are not covered by our insurance. We also receive requests for shipping estimates to approved overseas locations almost every day, but we prefer not to guess the postage element. In fact, before we invoice you, we bring the package to the post office for a confirmed postage figure, to get the total shipping charge as fair to you as possible.

High-value or heavy tools are usually shipped by UPS. Like most sellers, we charge an average flat rate for the “shipping charge” for all the contiguous 48 states. Slightly higher charges may apply for other US territories. We will be happy to discount your shipping charges on combined orders purchased the same da...
