An Exceptional Lady with Bent Arms
These ladies were very much coveted in my time of collecting back in the 70's, 80's etc. They were noted for their long dresses, finely painted facial features, elaborate hair styling and most of all , their gold painted heels with blue bows. This lady appears to have her original gown on with layers of lace over her original underwear of a petticoat and pantaloons. Her over-lay of lace has tiny black beads, black lace draped throughout and black ribbons at the bottom of the gown with a small train in the back.
Measurements: 7-1/4 "tall
Circa: Late 19th Century
