German bisque head girl doll with a beautiful face, 6.5 inches tall. Stationary blue glass eyes, socket head, original mohair wig in a natural, undyed color. Her wig is attached to the rim of her head and is styled in an uncommon way, creating some height to what is fairly long hair, creating what we we used to call a "fall". All original silk dress with a brown velvet sash and small floral corsage, in great condition, no damage or repairs. Under her dress she wears a long chemise, opening at the back, with the tiniest trim imaginable at the hem. Her face has a small extra painted mark just below her right eye, and there is some slight uneven-ness to the blush on her right cheek. Neither factory flaw detracts from what is a remarkably endearing little doll. Her rudimentary composition or papier mache body has those desirable peg joints, (meaning this is an earlier doll of its kind) and is straight legged with little pointed black strap shoes. Marked 219/16. Although I am not sure of the date of manufacture or the maker, I believe this is German. A wonderful little girl to complement your collection, and from one of the more intriguing corners of doll history.
