Her dress has kept its colour really well considering she is over seventy years Old Bless her along with her velvet covered face too.
She has a small rust mark on the front of her dress at the bottom which is quite hard to see really and a couple of small wear holes on both arms near the armpit seams this is due probably to being picked and carried but again these are quite small and not really too noticeable or detrimental to her.
Stitched on the base of Scarlett's left foot is her Merrythought cream /beige coloured REGD DESIGN label which accurately dates her to the 1930s period of Merrythought.
We have given Scarlett a nice silk bow sash around her waist and a head ribbon and around her neck is a tiny heart shaped lock and key charm on silk ribbon.
