Stunning 16" ( 40 cm ) French Fashion attributed to Bru with bisque swivel socket head with light blue glass threaded eyes,  pale bisque, closed mouth with slight hint of a smile, pierced-into-the head earlobes, mounted to a separate bisque shoulder plate incised " E" with identical incised marking on back of head. The body is white leather with gusset joints at hips and knees, and fully articulated wooden arms with dowel joints at shoulder, elbows, and wrists in the distinctive and recognizable Bru manner. She wears an antique pleated pale green silk two piece walking dress with lace trim and train in back. The wig is strawberry blond mohair over cork pate. Her shoes are simple back leather with flat soles but nevertheless antique. Although still a Bru " smiler, she is slightly earlier than the better known " Mona Lisa " smiler and indeed even harder to find. A wonderful doll of quality and appeal!.........................................SOLD
