German Wax-Over-Composition Doll, Bisque Arms and Legs

Lovely ballerina German wax-over-composition doll with elongated limbs of bisque. Her wax-over head is similar to a half doll, although I believe it comes to the waist. The limbs are wired onto the torso. She has long white stockings and ballet slippers painted on her bisque legs. She has the original long wavy mohair braided wig with the original silk bows. She is wearing a full gathered tulle tutu over a silk dress. She is attached to a wooden stand that has a sticker that says "Berlin / Made in Germany." The total height is 10-1/2 inches and the stand to which she is attached is approximately 1/2 in., so she is approximately 10 inches tall. There is no damage to the doll but the original clothing is fragile and dusty. I believe she was made at the turn of the 20th century.
