I've done some research and concluded that this doll dates to the 1950s and was most likely brought back as a souvenir from France or possibly Belgium. She has a stunning handpainted expressive face that seems to be a very hard plastic or composite. She is all original from her hair to her dress. Underneath she wears a guaze petticoat and has white plastic shoes that are removeable. Her taffetta dress has beautiful metallic lace trim and she wears a small brass cross around her neck. Her hat is velvet with more metallic lace. Now for condition, there is some light scratching on her face, and slight paint loss near the wig on her right side about 1/4" area. Her dress has some staining and spots on the red part and light sun damage on the black parts. Hat also shows foxing as well. However, she is still quite beguiling and would make a great restore doll or keep her as is and enjoy the history she shows! She stands about 11" tall.
