16 In. Parian-type with Fancy Hairdo, Glass Eyes, Hair Beading

The parian-type or untinted bisque shoulder head dolls were made for only approximately 20 years, 1860-70's. The ones with fancy hairdos are in the most demand. This lady has an elaborate hairdo with a strip of beading wrapped in the beautiful blonde curls. The glass eyes are also a much in demand feature and this one has large almond eyes that are surrounded in lightly painted lashes and feathered brows. She has pierced exposed ears and is wearing little jet drop earrings. Her cloth body with bisque limbs seems to be a later but vintage replacement body. She is dressed beautifully in vintage fabrics, including underclothing, designed and custom made for her. There is no damage to her shoulder head. There is a crack at the ankle of her left black painted boot.

Item ID: H-00819

Most parians are unmarked as is this one, however, I believe it is a product of the Simon Halbig bisque factory.
