21” Sonneberg Doll ~ Belton-Type

Here is a lovely early doll from the Sonneberg region of Germany. She has perfect bisque with a flattened dome and two stringing holes. Her 8-ball Sonneberg-style body is composition and wood. She is wearing all antique/vintage clothing, hat, and shoes, and she has an additional replica outfit as well. Layaway is always an option. Please contact me to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her pale bisque has a flattened dome with two stringing holes on top. These dolls are commonly referred to as Beltons although we are uncertain of the origin of this term. She has gorgeous early gray eyes with deep spiral threading. She has a closed mouth with a wide white space between her accented and outlined lips. She wears a pretty dark blond mohair wig with loose curls all around. She is marked simply 12. Signs of wear: minor surface flaking at the neck hole. Factory Imperfections: an occasional teeny speckle.

Body: Her Sonneberg style body is composition and wood with eight loose ball joints. There is paint flaking on the wooden parts which is typical of these bodies. There is a repair on one lower leg, and the tip of one thumb is chipped.

Clothes: She has an all-antique/vintage costume including a two-piece dress, unders, hat, and shoes. Her two-piece silk outfit is all hand-stitched and fully lined. Underneath, she wears a full length slip and matching bloomers. She has wool stockings and French-style black leather shoes with ankle straps. She has a very fine hat decorated with a large feather and tiny flowers. The silk on the dress has some melting and age spotting, but this is not a problem because someone has made an exact replica of her antique dress! Both costumes are included with her.
