This is a wonderful doll by a very famous doll maker and has that Café au lait complexion. Please peruse all of the photos as they are huge part of my description.
This wonderful, fully marked on the back of her head, S& H 1009 doll stands just 12 tall but she has such presence and personality. There are no cracks or chips to her head.
The only problem is that someone who owned her really plastered the glue on her head. I have tried to take part of the glue and wig residue off but I will leave it to someone else for fear of removing her paint. Please note this in the photo of her head and this glue etc even shows up when I light her head.
All of it is on the outside not the inside of her head, again the photos. A little discoloration/rubs on her face. Her other problem is that she needs to be restrung. Really loose and she cannot hold a pose. Her legs will go backwards if you are just holding her.If she is on a doll stand then she is fine. Since I had her in a carriage with other dolls, her loose stringing did not bother me. Again, will leave it to her new owner. Her body is much darker than her head. She has some missing paint, the usual scrapes etc that come with a doll that has been played with. Miss 1009 is a very cute, sweet doll with a face that always makes me smile. She wears her ORIGINAL Presentation/Factory dress that is so adorable. It is cotton and has those wonderful white and blue stripes.
She also comes with her ORIGINAL button on factory made "union" suit that is also pictured. There is a half slip, a wig of sorts, older sock and shoes to complete her outfit.See photo of this doll. This is a beautiful doll looking for a new wonderful home:- I will miss her but it is time. Her head will be packed and diapered. She will be wrapped In bubble wrap and will packed plus she will be insured:.
