19" Model 136 Blond China Doll w/ Kid Body

This is a 19" tall circa 1890s-early 1900s blond marked model 136 size 5 Germany china shoulder head doll possibly by C. F. Kling. These late model dolls are often found on the same kid bodies that were used for the bisque head dolls, so it is possible that the body might be original.

She is dressed in a nice antique cream wool dress with red dots. It has tiny lace edging at the cuffs and neck. Her cotton pantaloons and socks are original on the body. I added the vintage petticoat to fill out her undergarments.

Condition: The body has had work done on it. Previous work was done to reinforce the inner cotton lining at the top under the doll's head, put leather patches over weak areas, and replace the leather uppers of the arms. In the process of investigating these repairs I discovered that the head has a very faint hairline on the back left shoulder - see photo. The doll's right thumb is chipped off and 3 fingertips on the left hand are slightly chipped. The wool dress has an area of moth holes in the back of the skirt.

She is not perfect, but is quite presentable. It's nice to have a marked model number too. These dolls tend to have distinct coloring, in this case pale blond hair with very dark eyebrows. Get a load of that heart shaped mouth!
