CHOICE c1840s Pink Tint Covered Wagon China Doll Head

CHOICE pink tinted china doll shoulder head in nearly pristine condition (two hair rubs) and the most gorgeous modeling and decoration with VERY high luster glaze.

Head is 5-3/4" tall from base of plate to top of head and 4-3/4" in a straight line across the inside of the plate from shoulder edge to shoulder edge. Depth front to back is 2-3/4".

Circa 1840s to early 1850s covered wagon hairstyle has ten (10) vertical curls with center part with high center peak. Eyebrows are thick black and quite straight with the gray outlining shown clearly in my super sized enlarged photos. The mouth has a long, narrow upper lip with low, slightly rounded peaks and a long, thin lower lip. The eyes are shaded blue with oval black pupils, red circular eye corner accents, black lash lines, and red lip lines. The cheeks are highly blushed and the nostrils have oval accents.

The shoulder plate is very deep and sloping and beautifully modeled with an indentation at the throat. Lightly modeled musculature of the chest and back are evident. The left shoulder has a slight separation at the inside shoulder edge which happened in the firing process. It is not evident on the outer surface and no resulting damage has occurred.

Condition is excellent with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The only wear is to the two center back curls with very slight wear to the highest edges.

This will make a doll between 23" and 24" tall on the proper doll body. Book value when properly dressed would be over $1,800 due to the quality of this head.

This is a most beautiful example of this head by the A. W. Fr. Kister Porcelain Factory.
