This is a 15.5" tall German Hertwig parian bisque bonnet head doll with original body and replaced arms. Her molded bonnet has pink fluted ruffles and bows circling her face. The back of the bonnet has been left white. She has retained her original commercially made saw dust stuffed cloth body and china lower legs, though with many patches. Her china arms are more recent replacements. Her cotton print dress and undergarments are also more recently made replacements, but very appropriately made. She has typical pudgy round child cheeks, blond bangs and blue eyes.
Condition: Patches to body as mentioned - see photos. China arms are replacements. There are 2 small flakes off the back of the bonnet. One off the front edge and one off a back edge. Neither is very significant not visible from the front, but mentioned for accuracy.
