When restoring these 75 year old + dolls, great care is taken in having them look like they did when they were mint & new. Color is vibrant, Finish is satiny, features are complete and great effort has been taken to replicate the originality from the factory. These girls are difficult to find in any condition. She is marked on the neck Patsy RUTH. Exquisite Light Brown Human Hair wig with sausage curls.
It is the old gauze vintage type. Her outfit is a factory Made Organdy dress & Hat set. Not sure of the origins but it suits her perfectly and looks to be Patsy Family style. It is also 30's era and has that Vintage look and feel, But is overall very nice. Light weight cotton slip and underwear.
Cute white Vintage leather shoes with ankle ties are very nice. More beauties listed, so please take a look.
Please look at all the pictures. There are good & clear close-ups. The item has been photographed well.The pictures are part of the description & support both the description and condition of the item. You have the option to use the magnification feature as well. Sometimes these 50-80 year old dolls just dont survive the test of time very well. Finding a skilled restorationist is as hard to find as the rare doll itself. A labor of love & mostly a lot of sanding. With these collectible pieces, I have done my best to keep the doll looking as original as possible when the doll was factory made (not what a 80 year old faded doll looks like). With that being said, These are still Vintage & Antique dolls. Composition especially has a lot of factory nuances that other materials do not have. Their imperfections are part of the charm of composition. This doll has been repaired if needed, and eyes will be clear and a appropriate color. There will be no missing fingers or toes. I use paints which are very similar to the ones used by the factory. The overhaul process includes stripping, filling, sanding, priming, airbrush painting, hand painted features & sealing. I pay special attention to the faces and they are completely smooth. I line the head socket with suede. I have been a skilled Artist all my life. My attention to detail of the painted features is expert. To see PHOTOS of my PRIOR restorations see my face book page: The Sewing Doll OR my restoration page on Pinterest/Dee Lampson.
