Face of a young woman is smooth while the hair is roughly worked. A filet holds the waved and curled hair back from the forehead. Behind the filet, the hair design is indistinguishable from the shape of the head. The crown of the head has been worn down and the nose has been broken. The eyelids define the eyes. The lips are straight. The face is not symmetrical: the left side of the face is more prominent than the right side, and the left eye is higher on the face than the right.
Condition: Very good. Chipped nose and hair; crown of head is eroded
