This auction is for an AM doll with a bisque head, hands, and shoulders, and a leather kid body. The leather is a little dingy, but, I didn't clean it, as I am not sure what is the best way. There is some damage under one arm, but again, I am not sure how to repair it without causing more damage. There is also a small bandaid on the same arm, near the elbow ( I did not try to remove it). There is a #7 inbedded on the back of her neck. I assume this as a mold number, but I'm not sure. There are no other markings on her anywhere. The info I do have, came from searches on the internet. If any of it is not correct (but, I think it is) I am truly sorry. She has a beautiful unblemished face, and auburn brown hair. The bangs are short, and she has a long 6 -7" braid in the back. She has a cream colored slip (very old), that buttons up the back, and a pair of knee length panties ( do not match, I think they are newer) that button on the side. She wears a red velvet full length, long sleeved dress, with antique appliques down the front in two rows, and around the bottom of the sleeves. It also has 12 beautiful buttons down the front, in between the two rows of appliques, of the dress (see pictures). She has a red velvet hat with the same applique around the brim as the dress does. It also has a bow on the right side of the hat. It is in great condition as is the dress, with no rips or tears. Her eyes are a beautiful blue color(glass, I think), and do not close. The eyelashes are painted on as are the eyebrows. Her mouth is slightly open, and shows 4 teeth. Her lip color is coral. She has pierced ears with no earings. She is sawdust filled, as most old leather bodied dolls are. She is 20" tall, and is very beautiful. For her age (1894 to my knowledge), she is in very good condition, and would be a great addition to anyones collection..... I only ship with insurance, and guarantee my packaging 100%.

Thanks for looking, and have a Great New Year.....God Bless
