Queen Louise Doll: a beauty with wonderful skin tones and composition body and original Antique clothing! She is wearing her original Edwardian cotton Dress with beautiful detailing and lace--it has some wears and may need a tiny bit of mending. She is really outstanding in bisque color and clothing and wig. More photos available on request.
This 25 tall doll is a bisque head & composition body model known as Queen Louise. Based most likely on the very popular 18th C Queen Louise of Prussia.
I don't know if she is a Wolf or Armand Marseille made head, see the marks. She has a very unique pretty delicate face with narrow nose. I replaced a worn matted mohair wig with a NEW sausage curl wig that is Superb for her face.
She has her original pate under the wig. She has a nice slim oval shaped face with a dimpled chin, slim nose, gorgeous bisque coloring and fixed brown eyes. It's a lovely somewhat pale bisque with extremely minor rubs see all pics. She had one partially chipped tooth that was professionally patched and you can't even tell unless you really inspect it. The bisque head has no defects, the makers mark include the numbers 30 at top of head (back), and 9 at rear base of neck.
She is wearing a period buttoned back sleeveless cotton chemise top and skirt with pantaloons underneath the light lacy cotton dress, (see the under layers in photo where she is standing on a chair minus her wig). She has new hand crocheted silk socks and cute lace up shoes with little flower accents in a beige suede like material. All clothing is cleaned and fresh.All together she is a really VERY very pretty faced Queen Louise with a unique expressive/somewhat pensive look owing to the slightly downturned brows. Christmas is coming, here is a LOVELY doll to make someone very happy! I pride myself with dressing my dolls in ANTIQUE clothing as opposed to modern copies whenever possible. And in their original clothes or at least same period antique. Reproduction clothing is usually silk, cotton etc. It adds A major value to the doll--so keep that in mind.
Considering the value of the clothing and accessories on my dolls, they are very reasonably priced, often for less than my investment.
