DAMAGED ARMAND MARSEILLE 390
This Armand Marseille head was on a very unusual multi-jointed body which had been badly damaged by water. Parts of the body were wood and parts were composite and the plaster coating had mostly turned to powder. The composite parts had also distorted badly when wet.
Much work was required to give her a new plaster coating and to reform the distorted composite parts. The body and limbs needed a complete repaint to complete the transformation.
Fabric and lace trim from an old dress were salvaged to make a new outfit.
