This is AGNES. She is part of the German doll maker, Hertwig Company's Pet Name collection. These dolls were made at the turn of the century and feature a hand painted china head with a cloth body and porcelain hands. Her porcelain head has a gilded collar and her name written on the shoulder plate.
Agnes is wearing a Colonial style pink satin gown with puff sleeves and ivory colored netting underneath the sleeves that end in a cuff. Dainty lace trims the neck of the dress. Under her dress is a cotton petticoat with lace trim and matching lace trimmed bloomers. She wears black net stockings and pink leather shoes. Each shoe has a little rose accent and ties with a pink ribbon. This antique doll wears an ivory colored cap accented with lace and a pink ribbon.
Agnes stands approximately 16 inches tall. She is in very good vintage condition with bright paint on her face and no crazing. She sports a low brow hairdo. Some of the gold on her collar and name has worn away. She has a small chip on her left forefinger. Her head has two holes for attaching to the body but whoever made her glued the shoulder plate to the cloth body. Anges's dress is a little snug for her. There are three metal snaps but they don't all reach around to snap them. Her back of the plate reads, "Patent Appd For GERMANY".
A delightful antique doll to add to your doll collection or give as a gift.
