Antique German Papier Mache Shoulder Head +Body/ Fixer Uppers

This is a fixer upper that includes a German Alice type German papier mache shoulder head plus a suitable antique body. It is a 19" body and a 6.5" shoulder head, which when combined makes a 24" tall doll. The head fits this body perfectly and it is a very suitable body for this type of head, thought they did not originate together.

The shoulder head has an Alice type hairdo with black headband in back. She has inset glass eyes with dark centers. It measures 6.5" tall, 4.5" across the shoulders, and 2.75" deep at the base. Condition: the skin tone areas have been overpainted, probably to effect a repair around the eyes. I removed a little of the overpaint from around the eyes and the original pinker skin color can be seen intact underneath. It is not too difficult to remove the repaint and re-expose the original color below if wished. The hair color does not seem to have been repainted.

The body has pink composition lower legs with bare feet. The lower arms are wood. The body measures 19" long, 4.5" across the shoudler and 2.5" deep at the top. Condition: The body has old patches and recoverings, as often is needed over time.

I am selling these together since they match up so well, but it's up to the next owner to make a whole out of these hopeful parts.
