This is a lovely 19" tall circa 1880s German blond child china head doll model 1086 made by Alt Beck & Gottschalck. This doll has short blond hair with tight curls over the entire head. I have had the head off the body and have recorded the markings inside. the inside of the head has a black 7 mark and inscribed 4. The outside back of the shoulder plate has faint model number mark that I have enhanced in the inset photo. I believe it reads 1086. She has fine antique china lower arms and legs. Her excellent cloth body appears to have been refurbished many years ago. It is very firmly stuffed with sawdust and is in good condition. Her antique clothing consists of white cotton pantaloons and chemise, cream wool petticoat with turkey track embroidered hem, deep blue crushed velvet dress with golden yellow cotton braid trim and gold velvet ribbon with flowers at the waist, and a yellow silk bonnet.
Condition: There are some kiln specks on the lower back of the shoulder plate, but no chips, cracks or repairs to the head. The doll's right hand has some finger chips. Her wool petticoat is too big in the waist and needs to be adjusted. The ties on the bonnet are short and frail and need to be replaced. Other than these minor things she is in good condition.
She is a lovely child doll, ready to grace your collection.
