Edith is one of the "Pet Name" dolls made by the German doll company Hertwig & Co. This low brow China head doll is fully dressed with a three piece outfit and a delightful green felt hat. Edith has a low brow black hairstyle with beautiful hand painted features. Her face features blue eyes, black eye brows, rosy pink cheeks and light pink/orange lips. Her hands are porcelain as are her brown and white boots.
This antique doll has a cloth body and is dressed in a flower print dress with a bottom ruffle and lace trim at her neck, sleeves and hem. Her undergarments consist of double layered cotton petticoat with a ruffle at the bottom of the first layer. The second layer has netting on the bottom half. The double slip has a metal snap closure. The doll also wears cotton bloomers with tatting at the bottom of each leg. The bloomers tie in the back. She is sporting a sweet green felt hat that someone has lovingly embroidered with little flowers and a border. Two matching "leaves" are sewn to each side of the hat.
This adorable, vintage doll is in very good condition. Her dress is clean and un-stained. She has a little bit of wear to her hair on the front and back. She stands 16 inches tall. Her shoulder plate has a raised name and collar but was never painted gold like these dolls usually were. Her shoulder plate has two holes and is connected to her body with heavy duty thread. The back of her should plate reads, "Patent Appd For Germany".
A sweet antique doll for your collection.
