One arm/shoulder ball joint was inside of the body, but I got it out - not shown, but it is included. Perfect bisque head. Left eyeball needs repaired, but piece is there - just needs glued back on. Ball of right leg/hip joint is broken in half - looks like at a seem as break is smooth & even. Torso needs work. One part of arm hole is broken loose & inside of torso. The other arm hole is partially hanging on, but needs repair. Crack in right shoulder. Missing her wig pate. Hair is nice, but a little messy. Needs re-strung. (Stringing was very loose, so I cut stringing for easier shipping. Again, she is no longer strung & will need to be re-strung.) Clothing wrinkled & will be more so, I'm sure, after shipping.

On Jun-20-19 at 18:44:54 PDT, seller added the following information:IMPORTANT ADDED INFO! PLEASE READ: It was brought to my attention about the light mark under her right eyebrow. I cleaned it off with a damp cloth. If you would like a new photo showing that there is no mark there, please email me. Also, notice the right ear. There are 2 black marks on the ear that I was not able to clean off - not cracks, just markings of some kind that I was not able to remove. Look at the ear in the photo and you will be able to see it. Thank you!
