Description of Doll for Sale
I am pleased to have a wonderful example of an antique Armand Marseille 323 Googly doll for sale. Armand Marseille made the 323 googly mold in Germany around 1913. At 14 inches she is the largest version of this German googly doll I have ever seen, and probably the largest ever sold. Fortunately the bigger doll while very impressive is just as cute as her smaller sisters. She has her original antique dress, cap and slip, She is also wearing a pair of bloomers that look to be a vintage addition. The shoes and socks are also vintage replacements. She has blue glass googly sleep eyes. The wig is antique and may be original to her. The fully jointed composition body has its original finish with remnants of red-lines on the hands.
Head Mark: Germany, 323, A 3/0 M
