Here comes the cutest antique pincushion doll, made around 1900. The doll is made of finest bisque, with full dome head, hand painted features and jointed arms (elastics not elastic anymore); it is not entirely clear, if it is a half doll, sometimes a fully formed bisque doll might sit in such a pincushion.
Our opulent dressed little Lady doll here has an elaborately made wig with braids and ringlets, long vertical curls, and a flower crown. In her right hand she holds a flower bouquet. The doll is not visibly marked with a maker’s mark, but she must be from one of the more famous manufacturers, observe the modelling of the Fossa jugularis, the sideways glancing eyes and open mouth!
The front of or little rococo-looking dolls skirt is fully made out with finest lace, the cream-white silk part is hand embroidered with a flower tendril. Under all this sits hand embroiders batiste over the pin cushion.
The doll is in excellent condition considering her age, the pincushion was never used as such, it must have been a decoration object from the beginning!
The pincushion is 19 cm / 7 ½ inches tall and 11 cm / 4 ½ inches in diameter on its base.
