French Silk Lovely

This all cloth, silk covered French boudoir doll must have been a stunning doll 80+ years ago because even after 80+ years and a shredded blue gown and missing silk on her face and chest, she remains a work of art.

She has red silk floss hair, hand-painted, dramatic face paint and individually stitched fingers. She only has hints of her blue silk dress, trimmed in rhinestone and lace. Her fancy slip and pantaloons remain and make a good substitute for a dress. I'm not good at identifying fabric, but it's satiny and in good shape, trimmed with gorgeous lace. From the indentations on her feet, I can tell she once wore ankle-strapped shoes. I wonder if the shoe straps were rhinestoned-trimmed? That would have been gorgeous.
