Here is an interesting example of a vintage bisque head baby doll made in Japan for the US market. In the early 1900's Germany dominated the US market for bisque headed dolls. When WWI cut off German imports to the US many Japanese porcelain makers started making bisque head dolls for export to the US. With their experience in porcelain manufacturing the Japanese makers easily duplicated the quality and designs of the popular German heads. This doll was made by the Yamamoto Importing Company between 1915 and the early 1930's
The doll has a closed head with painted hair and is 12 inches long. It has an open mouth with molded teeth and tongue. The doll has glass sleep eyes. The doll is on it's original composition body with it's original finish including redline details on the hands and feet. It is wearing an original dress and matching knit undershirt.

Marks

The head has a very faint logo for the Yamamoto Import company and made in Japan. I was not able to get a clear picture of the marks.

Condition of Doll for Sale

The bisque head is perfect with no chips, cracks, rubs or repaint. The wax on the eyes is intact but it has darkened some. The body has its original finish with no chips, cracks, crazing, repairs or repaint. There are some rubs in the paint on the feet. The vintage clothes are in good shape with no foxing, stains, rips or repairs.

Note: For bisque head dolls I use USPS "Special Handling Fragile" service which provides separate handling for packages. The charge is $10.95 which is added to the insurance charge in the Ruby Lane shipping summary. I feel this extra charge is appropriate to insure trouble free shipping of your fragile purchases. This charge can be declined of the buyer does not feel it is needed.
