15” Flat Top China Doll ~ Original Body and Clothes, Extra Dress

This is an 1860's doll with a china (glazed porcelain) shoulderhead. Her head is perfect, and she retains her original cloth body with perfect china limbs. She is fully dressed, wearing a beautiful antique two-piece brocade gown. She also retains all of her original clothing, including her two-piece wool dress and three piece underwear set. She is probably by Kister. Here are the details:

Head: Her glazed porcelain shoulderhead is perfect with no cracks, chips, or hairlines. She has a so-called flat top hairdo, circa 1860. She has nice modeling with a long fine nose. She has two sew holes in front and back, and the third sew hole, in the center, was never made. Factory Imperfections: the occasional speckle and pit, as expected of dolls from the era. Signs of wear: some light rubbing.

Body: Her original cloth body has beautiful and perfect china limbs. Her hands are especially well modeled and her narrow molded boots have flat soles. The body is sturdy and in overall very good aged condition. She is wearing some sort of sewn-on unders. There does not appear to be any repair underneath - just made this way.

Clothes: She is wearing a beautiful antique two-piece brocade gown. The jacket is form fitting and edged in braid. The full skirt has thick pleats in the back. The gown is faded but otherwise in excellent condition. She also comes with her all-original clothing, and everything is entirely hand-stitched. She wears a two-piece dress of red patterned wool with green grosgrain ribbon trim and huge black cloth-covered buttons. The dress is very worn with moth holes and mending. Underneath, she wears a matched three-piece underwear set, consisting of chemise, half-slip, and bloomers. These are in very good aged condition. These clothes were originally sewn-on, and now everything is pinned in place.
