German Belton bisque head doll, 18 inches tall, on unusual elongated body. This is a pretty brown glass eyed girl, a socket head with a flange, attached at the factory through holes in the top of the head to a hook that emerges from the body. Eyes are stationary in the original set. Head sits on the body and seems loose but is not going anywhere. The cloth body has a very long torso with shorter arms of papier mache. The lower legs are also papier mache and are just over-the-top fabulous! The head is in excellent condition but the mohair wig has suffered from excess glue in front and is sparse on one side. I do not want to remove the bonnet because it is glued to the head in back. This is the factory clothing, and the doll shows only the most minimal of wear---not sure she was played with. There's some patching on the upper legs- the leg wires wore little holes in front, but all is well now. There is a theory that this doll was put on a long body to make her appear larger...well, that's as good an explanation as any. There are no marks at all. I am very fond of odd dolls and this one is quite endearing!
