Lovely early Parian Bisque doll wearing a bonnet measures about 12" tall. It is incised on the back of the shoulder plate "La Motte" with the year 61. Gerald La Motte was an artisan dollmaker in the 1960s and each of his dolls is individual and one of a kind. Bisque extremities and pink molded boots with gold buttons. Her body is hard stuffed cloth and in very good condition. No chips, cracks or repairs to the parian bisque. She comes undressed, as that is how I found her. You are bidding on the doll only. Email questions happily answered. I will be listing other estate jewelry and pieces this week, so please check my other auctions for combined shipping. Thanks for looking and Good Luck bidding!

Antique, vintage and estate pieces are all pre-owned and will have usual wear, which I will describe to the best of my ability. I do not proclaim to be an expert. It is never my intention to hide a flaw, but sometimes what may be obvious to you, as a collector, is something that I would never notice. Please ask questions. The pieces I sell are Antique & Vintage items which I have purchased at estate sales and auctions for resale, and as such, some of them have been exposed to years of dust, household odors, perfumes and yes, even smoke. I do NOT clean these items as I know some antique items can be damaged by improper cleaning. IF THIS IS GOING TO BOTHER YOU OR YOU HAVE A STRONG SENSITIVITY TO ANY OF THESE CONDITIONS IT IS SUGGESTED THAT YOU take that into consideration BEFORE placing a bid. I try to describe all items as accurately as possible. All sales are final unless item is misrepresented. (Please check my feedback) If you feel that the item is not as described, please contact me and I will work with you to assure a satisfactory solution! Absolutely no returns will be accepted if the item has been altered in any way. Refunds will be for the cost of the item only, NO refunds for shipping or insurance charges.
I leave feedback upon receipt of payment and always appreciate the same when your item reaches you safely. I always anxiously await feedback. It let's me know that your item has arrived safely and you are pleased. (I try to pass along what I think are really Cool items and I am excited when you think so, too!) If you feel you cannot leave me 5 stars than PLEASE, contact me so that I can rectify the situation.
