14.5" Kling 116 Parian ~ Molded Hat & Glass Eyes

This German bisque doll is circa 1880 by Kling. Collectors refer to this type of doll as Parian-type. The bisque shoulderhead is perfect, with fine details such as a molded hat with streamers, a decorated shoulderplate, and glass eyes. He has a vintage cloth body with leather arms. Here are the details:

Head: The bisque shoulderhead is perfect with no cracks, chips, or hairlines. He has blue glass eyes, a closed mouth, and neatly painted features. He has blond molded hair with a side part and his ears are partly exposed. His molded gray hat is banded around the crown with a molded blue ribbon, trimmed in gold luster, which flows down the side onto his shoulder. These streaming ribbons are a great match for his eyes. The shoulderplate is decorated with a gold-trimmed collar with a tiny raised dot design, and a big pink polka dot bow. He is marked on the rear shoulderplate 116 – 4. Factory imperfections: a tiny speckle and a tiny red dot on his lips. I did not notice these until I enlarged his close-up photos. They are very tiny and not seen on display. Signs of wear: None.

Body: He has an old cloth body with straight legs, leather arms with individually stitched fingers, and wire armature in the limbs. There is a small stitched repair on one thigh and a little discoloration here and there. It is a nice body, sturdy and sound.

Clothes: He is dressed as a young man. His vest has attached sleeves. It is double-breasted and closes with hooks and eyes. He has navy blue velvet knee-length pants and antique cotton pantaloons. He has blue wool stockings and black leather tie shoes that were made for him.

International Buyers: My dolls are available for worldwide shipping. Insurance options vary by country of destination, so please contact me to discuss shipping and insurance options to your country.
