This young girl looks to be from the mid to late 1800's. She is made out of the finest and palest bisque and is the quality of so-called parian (non-glazed porcelain) dolls from the mid 1800's. Her facial features are much like a parian doll and she is wearing clothing from that era. There are no marks but I am certain she is German-made. Notice the separation lines in the hair and the distinct lines between the fingers. She has molded lids. The painting is superb in pastel shades. The young lady holds a long stem flower in one hand and her apron in the other. There is a tiny inherent stress mark between two gathers at the lower edge of her skirt on the backside and one on her right shoulder.
