Cabinet size papier mache girl with beautiful face and crier strings. This 12.5 inch doll has a truly lovely look, with large dark brown stationary eyes, a well-shaped nose, and open mouth, no teeth. Her papier mache head has just a few cracks, no repaint, in excellent condition for this type of doll, and her lower arms and legs are also in great shape. I believe this is her original body, although the shoulderhead looks a bit large. Body has a couple of patches, and there are a pair of crier strings. By pulling the strings, you can hear the mechanism working, but I do not think the full sound is working. No marks, but possibly made by Schilling. Replacement mohair wig, very flattering, and she wears a delicate antique lace bonnet. (replaced ribbon ties). Original factory chemise, later knickers and petticoat. She is wearing a silk dress, drop waisted, full skirt, mostly handmade, with lace and ribbon trims. Somehow, she has matching booties! A little sweetheart who makes me think of a child dressed up for a formal photograph.....
