I completely restored this doll. She's an 18" Debuteen. Her head is spring jointed on a shoulder plate which is glued to a firmly stuffed cloth body. Her arms and legs are disk jointed at the shoulders and hips. Lois of Toniwear.com made the outfit which consists of a blue velveteen bollero jacket over a print dress with cap cleeves. To get the print in the fabric to look similar to the original fabric this dress had, I painted the orange flowers a darker red. I made her blue suede kiltie shoes and gave her a new mohair wig, appropriate hat and copied the wrist tag she would have had.
Value: After all the research and hours of work, this doll would be a bargain at $300.00 but she'll never be for sale.
