Antique 14" ABG Model 1000 Highland Mary Bisque Doll

This is a sweet 14" tall antique circa 1880s so-called Highland Mary hairstyle with bangs parian or bisque shoulder head doll model 1000 size #4 made by German company Alt Beck & Gottschalck. She has an antique body that was recovered long ago to preserve it, retaining the original antique bisque arms and legs. The bisque legs have fancy black single strap heeled shoes and nubby textured green socks. The back of the shoulder plate is well marked with ABG numbers 1000 #4, for model and size.

She is dressed in antique but in my opinion slightly later period clothing than the age of the doll. Her dress is a crisp semi sheer cream color with pale teal ribbon trim that coordinates with her fancy footwear. She has a white cotton slip and pantaloons underneath.

Condition: The shoulder head has no cracks or repairs. There is one small chip on a curl on the back of her head, and a small chip on the back edge of the shoulder plate - which might be a manufacturing flaw. The bisque of the lower legs has a grayish color that doesn't seem to clean off. There is a small brown stain on the front on her skirt.

She is a sweet doll, display ready for you.
