Antique Bru Chevrot body

I purchased this antique Chevrot body a month ago and it finally came!  I was going to use this body for my next Bru I already started making head. The body measures 12 inch tall so I thought 16 inch Bru Jne 6 head would fit on this body.. Well, it turned out Bru Jne 6 head is bit too small for the body. ( Oh no! I already bisque fired the head!)   I am changing my plan to make Bru Jne 11 head instead. It seems Bru Jne 11 head ( usually for 19 inch doll) fits on this body. The finished doll size will be about 17 inch tall.


The body does not have bisque SP and arms. I am going to make replacement.                このボデイーはショルダープレートとビスクアームは付いていないので、私が作ります。


Left toes are broken. I am going to repair this part.                  左の足の部分が欠けているので、リペアをします。

A piece of bisque shoulder plate was attached by a nail. I am saving this bisque fragment to match the skin tone color.                                                                                                  ショルダープレートは釘で固定されています。このビスク部分は、絵付けの色あわせの参考にとっておきます。

Inside the torso is firmly packed with granulated cork. Fairly large block of wood is hinged from hip joint to keep body posture straight.                     胴体は顆粒状のコルクかしっかりと詰められています。胴体の中心には、思った以上に大きいサイズの木片が埋め込まれていました。これがボデイーをまっすぐに立たせる支えになっています。
