c.1860s-70s French China Head Doll on Original Kid Body

This is an unusual circa 1860s-1870s French china head doll on her original kid leather body. She is 11.5" tall and has a flat top hair style. What makes her so unusual is that she is definitely a French made china doll, not one of the more often found German china dolls. The head is marked with raised 11 on the back of the shoulder plate. She has the more vivid coloring and larger painted eyes typical of French work. The body is also a typical simple French kid leather body, though her left arm has been replaced with a newer matching limb. She is dressed in nice antique pantaloons and chemise, topped by a well made simply styled white cotton dress. Her lace collar with red silk accent sits separately on top of her dress. She has no shoes or stockings.

Condition: The china head is in good condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. Left leather arm is a replacement. There is a patch on the ankle.

This little lady would be a fine addition to any collection of antique china dolls.
