She is Gray :D She looks like she has some remnants or her orginal color. How old is she?

Yeah the way you can tell is the remaining color on her "hard points", nasal bones, joints, cheeks.

Yep, varnished. If you give her a bath, you'll be able to tell if she had a blanket or not before varnish took over. Looks like she probably had a bay base.
