This is a sweet 9.5" tall boyish child antique German kinderkoph type china head doll dressed in a long antique baby gown. Though the doll is 9.5" tall with the gown the total length is 13". He has a commercial antique cloth body with china lower legs and arms. The arms are especially nice long slender ones with a slight pink tint and well modeled hands. The lower legs appear to be slightly different sizes, so I assume that one is a replacement. The shoulder head alone measures 2.25" tall 2" across the shoulders and 1.25" 1.25" deep at the base. This doll is wearing an early antique wool skirt or petticoat with pink stitched hem decoration, topped by a long white cotton baby gown with curved ruffled hem. I added a simple bonnet.
Condition: the china head has no chips, cracks or repairs. There are 2 manufacturing flaws, one on the forehead and one on the center back of the shoulder plate. the body has some stitched repairs. Both lower legs are antique but they are slightly different sizes so I assume one is a replacement. the skirt has some holes and wear to the pink stitching. The gown has a small hole in front.
This child doll would make a perfect baby for a larger china doll to cradle.
