Description of Belton Doll for Sale

This is a interesting and mysterious example of a bisque head Belton doll. The doll is 8 1/2 inches tall. The maker of this doll is unknown. Some Beltons are French but the majority are German and are referred to as Sonnenberg Beltons. The face resembles some closed mouth examples by Bahr and Proschild. There is a faint partial mark on the head that resembles an ABG mark. In any case I cannot in good faith attribute this doll to any maker or country. Peak production of Belton dolls seems to be in the 1880's. Most Beltons had a closed mouth. Since this doll has an open mouth with molded teeth it is probably made in the late 1880's to early 1890's when the open mouth dolls started to become more popular.

The doll is on an original antique composition and cardboard 5 piece body with great painted shoes and socks. She is wearing an antique mohair wig and has set glass eyes. The flapper dress is a vintage replacement made with vintage material.

Marks

The head has an indistinct partial mark and a size mark that are hard to see.

Condition of Doll for Sale

The bisque head is perfect with no chips, cracks, rubs or repaint. The body has its original finish with no cracks, crazing, repairs or repaint. The clothes are in good shape with no foxing, stains, rips or repairs.


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.
