Description of Doll for Sale

I am pleased to present a beautiful example of a vintage Emma Clear Wisteria Lady China head doll.  The China head has a very detailed snood with a Wisteria motif and a luster-ware finish.  Emma Clear was making reproduction and original Parian and China head dolls up to 1949.  Records indicate the most examples of the Wisteria lady were made around 1946

This Wisteria Lady is 19 inches tall and is on an original kid body with china spoon hands, sewn in socks and boots.  The kid body version is rarer than the typical cloth body with corset seen on most Emma Clear dolls.  The kid body is in great condition with no splits wear or repairs.  The socks and boots that are sewn into the body provide the ultimate finish for this doll. 


There is a very indistinct mark on the bottom back of the shoulder plate.  I was not able to make it out and could not get any useful pictures.   

Condition of Doll for Sale

The Wisteria Lady is in factory original condition.  There are no chips, cracks or repairs to the china head.  The kid body has no splits, wear or repairs.  If you have seen my other listings I try to go to extremes to document even minor issue a customer would want to see before purchasing a doll.  In the case of the Wisteria lady I could not find anything significant to note even though this Emma clear doll is  almost 70 years old.

This is an antique doll that will have some wear and imperfections expected in an antique or vintage doll.  I make every effort to describe all significant flaws in my descriptions and show them in the pictures.  Please read the description fully and examine all the pictures to be sure you understand the condition of the doll.  The pictures can be enlarged to show the doll in great detail.  If you have any questions or would like any additional information on this doll please email me and I will be glad to answer your question.  California residents are responsible for California Sales tax in addition to the purchase price shown.
