23" bisque doll by the German firm Gans & Seyfarth. Lovely face with dark blue eyes. She has hair eye lashes as well as painted upper and lower lashes. The sleep eyes open and close freely. No issues with bisque – she has been blacklighted and there are no hairlines, cracks or repairs. Marked G & S 5 Germany.
The composition ball jointed body is in so-so condition. It has overall wear as well as repaint on arms and upper legs. Two fingers have been repaired.
Doll has been beautifully redressed in a fully-lined silk dress that is newer, but made to look old, finished with pretty lace and trims, and buttons down the back. She now has a human hair wig with long curls; shoes and socks, but no undies.
Very pretty doll, circa 1911. Not perfect, but priced accordingly. Layaway available.
