VC7088SO: German China Doll
This outstanding china head doll dates circa 1870s and stands 20" tall. She has been part of my personal collection for decades. She was packed away for our move to a new location over 13 year ago and remained packed away safely until this week. An outstanding example of an early doll, she has a cloth body that is stuffed with sawdust. Glossy original porcelain arms and legs, with no damage, aside from some paint wear to the black painted boots and some tiny (pin point size) dots of wear to black of hair in back--just three or so and very small. Beautiful painted facial features with blue eyes, closed painted mouth and rose blushed cheeks. Three sew holes in front of shoulder plate. I don't see any chips, hairlines or damage. Her body is in great condition. Dressed in exquisite original clothing which includes elaborate pantaloons, two slips and an ornate heavily decorated white batiste dress with tucks and lace insertion, fitted waist , large open neckline to expose the beauty of her shoulderplate. She wears an antique locket around her neck. No leaking of sawdust. She is really a superb doll and would be lovely displayed on a bed, amid some French Normandy lace pillows!
