Description of Doll for Sale
I have a wonderful antique Parian Head Dresden Gent Parian head made in Germany by C.F. Kling & Co. It is a fantastic example of a German Parian head made circa 1890 - 1910s. The antique Parian head is in perfect condition with some wear to the gold trim on the molded shirt and tie. There is also some minor wear to the back of the painted hair. The Parian head is on an antique hair stuffed cloth body that is most likely not original to the Parian head. The original factory body for this doll would have usually been taller and thinner than this body. The Parian head is 5 inches tall.
As it is typically seen in most early German Parian heads there are no marks on the Parian head. The assignment of C.F. Kling & Co. as the maker of this doll was arrived at based on investigations in several resource books in my library.
Condition of Doll for Sale
The Parian head is perfect with no chips, cracks or repairs.. There is some wear to the gold painting on the molded shirt collar and tie. There is also some wear to the hair on the back of the head. (see close-ups in the slide show). There is also a small bubble in the porcelain of the hair near the ear. This is a flaw from the Kling factory.
The doll may have wear and flaws seen in used dolls. I try to describe significant flaws in my text and show them in picture. Read the text and examine the pictures to be sure you understand the dolls condition. If you have questions please email me.
