We doll collectors have these little gems tucked away--victims of our best intentions not realized. I'm the worst because I want to do so many things. And--frankly--sewing intimidates me. I don't see a straight line, but there was a time when I thought I'd try. Anyway--I think it's time for someone else to come through for this sweet child.
She is what's called a common German bisque, but how can we call her common? Dolls like this haven't been made for more than 80 years. What doll made today has blue-gray glass sleep eyes, little porcelain teeth, and a rosebud mouth? She's got a daisy-chain of eye lashes and her brows are single stroke--nicely arched. She's marked all over the back of her shoulderplate as if she entered this country as a duchess. Her little kid body is very well made--as well made as a French fashion's--and it is in good shape. She has a repair to her knee and some stitching to her foot, but no other booboos. She is a sweetheart.
She's had other incarnations. The pin holes in her kid body attest to that. They used to pin clothing on dolls long, long ago. I wonder who she was? I never saw her other than this nekkid lil waif. I wanted to make a Gypsy Fortune Teller doll out of her. I would have used crepe paper for her Halloween ensemble, like what was in the old Dennison books. You see how far I got. Anyway, here she is awaiting a loving touch.
She's 14" tall.
Arms to her wrists are 3.5" (I'm thinking making sleeves here).
Head circumference is 7"
If you want to dress her/him as a boy, from crotch to ankle is 6". From waist to ankle is 8".
Thank you for stopping by. Please ask any questions. I'm always happy to answer.
