This old, hand painted, porcelain half doll is a larger size. The young woman has delicate features and appears to placing a pink rose in her pompadour wig. She has alabaster skin and her face is simply detailed with a faint smile, blue eyes and a blush to her cheeks. She has short ringlets of hair falling across her bare shoulders and on her back. She has a thin black, strap choker painted around her neck. Her right arm and delicate hand are away from her body. On the flared base that would be sewn to a pincushion it is incised an entwined GH trademark, Germany a number that appears to be 15542. I believe this is a piece from the Karl Schneider firm of Thuringia and that it is from the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. This doll is sometimes referred to as Lady Hamilton.
She measures almost 5 ¼” tall and about 4 ¼” wide across at her elbows. The base measures about 3 3/16” by 1 ¾”. She is very good condition with minimal wear and no damage.
