Divine All Original 1870's German Fashion French Market Doll

We are very pleased to present this choice early all original 19 inch German fashion doll for your consideration. This doll dates to the 1870's, having been made in Germany for the French market. Everything about this doll is captivating! This gorgeous beauty is a rare find and she is in excellent condition too. This unmarked early doll is VERY FRENCH, was created in the same tradition and can rival any of her French cousins.

HEAD: The doll's lovely head is barely tinted and the bisque is of the finest quality. Her cheeks are lightly blushed with only a few minuscule sized rubs that are easily overlooked. Moreover, her bisque head is surprisingly pressed, which is a rare attribute for a German doll. The original plaster pate and original excellent long human hair wig is in the French fashion style. The pate is affixed to the head, with the wig attached to the pate. The condition of the bisque is immaculate, with no damage of any type, factory flaws or restoration to her swivel head or shoulder plate. Her angelic face is beyond beautiful. She has gorgeous amber colored paperweight eyes that actually sparkle. Her facial expression is one of a half pout, with a closed mouth. She has pierced ears with no damage. She is absolutely divine.

ATTIRE: This beauty's outstanding original silk gown dates to the 1870's. It is a rich silk garnet colored gown with abundant lace. It is hand stitched, lined, and has many details in the tailoring .The dress is in excellent condition with no melting, holes, tears, repairs or mal odors. She wears antique cotton bloomers and a lacey half petticoat, both in fine condition. The lady wears a bracelet that dates to the age of the doll and in very good condition. Her gorgeous hat was specifically designed to match her gown and is the only newly added accessory. She needs a pair of antique shoes.

BODY: The doll's body is the original French type kid body, with bisque lower arms, tiny waist, large, round bottom and stitched toes. The bisque forearms are especially beautiful. They are works of art in their own rite, are beautifully blushed and have no issues. The kid body is in very fine condition. It remains supple, despite its age, and has no leaks. There is an old repair on the front mid-section of the body. It was expertly accomplished with finely hand tailored small stitches consisting of very heavy thread. The repair is not even felt and was reported to be firmly intact. This information was provided by the former owner who removed the dress to examine the doll. She then redressed her by re-stitching the area where the stitches were removed. There is no evidence of this procedure visible. This amazing doll will make an important contribution for a collection or as a single object of art. She is fully guaranteed to meet all of your expectations.
