She is in very good condition for age. Her hair is very nice and I don't think it has ever been taken out of the original braids.
Her face and hands could use light cleaning but I don't see any damage or stains. I'm not sure if there is mild loosening of joints but there does not seem to be anything obvious as I work with her.
She holds poses without difficulty and can stand independently but would be better with a stand. Kirsten is wearing her original meet outfit including her blue print dress, striped apron, shoes & socks, and bloomers/drawers.
I do NOT have her hair ribbons. Her clothing is generally in very nice condition but the elastic is not tight in the bloomers/drawers anymore and there may be some yellowing to the bloomers from age. Most of the items from Kirsten's original accessory kit are also included and are in good vintage condition. This includes Kirsten's sunbonnet, spoon apron, amber heart necklace and embroidered handkerchief.She does NOT have the tiny wooden spoon that would have originally been a part of the accessory set. There has been some yellowing of white fabrics from age so that they now look like unbleached natural cotton rather than bright white. This would probably improve with a good soak. I do not see any actual damage--no stains, tears, etc.
The elastic waistband of the bloomers has lost its elasticity over time and is no longer stretchy so the bloomers hang loosely. I lack a way to compare and form an opinion as to whether or not there has been any significant fading of the colored fabrics but they look nice to me and they have been stored in a chest, have not had much exposure to light.
