Residing in a shadow box fantasy-land of flowers, feathers, sea shells and Erzgebirge wooden toys for well over a century now, this mint condition Papier-mache has enjoyed quite the good life! The German doll, who stands around twelve-inches tall overall, is of the type that was referred to as a "varnished head" when new – and she has certainly not changed much over time, as the finish upon her face, hairstyle and shoulders remains glossy and pristine. The same can be said of her remarkable original costume, complete with a knitted hat which is worn in a chic, up-turned fashion. The shadow box retains its original, wonderful, hand-rolled glass front which is puttied in place, and permanently so. This feature could make shipping this item risky, so we can arrange hand-delivery to local, or West Coast areas, or wherever we participate in shows, including the Atlanta-area this Summer. A true work of art, and a memorial to a special childhood of long, long ago.
Measures: 14 1/2" tall x 17" wide x 4" deep.
