Papier mache girl, 20 inches of sweetness in wonderful dress. This German beauty is on her original pink body, to which there have been some repairs, lower arms of oilcloth, re-stitched . Her original boots are present, in excellent condition, with black stockings. She wears a beautiful antique cotton pinstriped dress, handmade very well, with a corded waist and cartridge pleating. Underneath is an antique petticoat and knickers. She also wears a partial undershirt, with no sleeves. Around her neck is a brass chain with a vintage glass enamel pendant.
Her head is in very good condition, with little cracking, some wear to her paint, particularly her eyebrows, but this does not detract. Her wistful eyes are grey-blue glass. original human hair wig, ties in a small ponytail. She is stamped Made in Germany, upside down on the back of her shoulderplate, so we know she is very likely made in the 1890's near the end of the heyday of papier mache dolls.
