Sonneberg mystery doll with unusual original body. 14 inches, this distinctive doll has a story to tell, but I am only guessing at it. My theory is that someone came home with this head and made up the rest of the body. I am not sure what kind of head this is; it does not have a flange and the body has a extension that the head is attached to. Her head does move. She has an elongated carved wood body with papier mache arms (some chipping to her fingers) and legs, (those multi-strap boots are fabulous!) strung with elastic, mismatched stationary blue glass eyes , bisque head with highly rouged cheeks, no cracks, chips or hairlines. Her wig, likely original, is incomplete. There is a white area in the back that is not a wig pull but an area where the glaze was not applied. There is a mark of "0" there. She is wearing undergarments that are old but may not be original, and although her dress, in excellent condition, is also old, it may not be original. On the other hand it is hard to determine just what the term original means here, but she is certainly rare and distinctive.. You can be sure that nobody else has a doll like this one.
