c.1870s Alt Beck & Gottschalck 17" Bisque Lady w/ Pierced Ears & Molded Blouse
This is a very fine 17" tall circa 1870s German bisque lady doll with pierced ears and molded blouse, made by Alt Beck & Gottschalck. She has a fancy hairdo with 2 curls over her brow, exposed ears, and waves and curls overall. Her shoulder plate is molded as a white gathered blouse with blue bow around the collar. Her faux pearl earrings are later additions.
She has an antique horse hair stuffed commercially made cloth body with leather lower arms. The sewn on boots are oil cloth. It is the body she came to me on and is of the correct time period, but I have no way to judge if it is original or not.
Her clothing is wonderful. She has 2 petticoats, plus pantaloons under a red and green cotton plaid fashion dress that has buttons down the front and a long train in back. There are lace ruffles at the cuffs and neck, and a pocket on one side. The dress fits her perfectly.
Condition: The bisque head is in good condition, no chips, cracks or repairs. There are some patches on her leather arms
This handsome fashionable lady doll is sure to please you. She could be a star in your collection.
