Very beautiful antique French doll made by the Lanternier Limoges factory founded in 1855. This porcelain factory made dolls heads from 1915 through to 1924. She is very lovely and superbly painted with enormous brown eyes and dimpled chin.
Her body has been restored at sometime and when removing her pate it is obvious she has been restrung. She came to me in a very dirty and shabby state and had obviously laid neglected for many years.
I have examine her head very closely with a loop and can see no signs of restoration, hairline cracks or repainting. She has weighted eyes the back of which is chipped but they open and close without issue. She has an original Edwardian fine cotton and lace trimmed dress with pintucked, lace and ribbon jacket, the straw hat is also antique. She has one old paste earring which I have not removed.
