Antique dollhouse lady with solid dome swivel head, glass eyes and composition body, 5.5 inches tall. A delightful lady with a mohair beehive hairdo, dressed in a silk faille underdress with a wool challis pinafore on top. Ribbon collar with metal trim, knickers, painted black stockings and ochre shoes. Clothing is not easily removable. This lady is marked with two crossed flags, a "No. 0." and ".G." and was made by the infrequently seen Porzellanfabrik Rauenstein. I am guessing (reasonably) that the G refers to the man who became sole owner of the company, Franklin Georgii. This company was founded in 1793 by the Greiner family (!?) but did not begin making dolls until the 1880's. Mr. Georgii passed away in 1900, so I think this doll was produced 1880's-1890's.
