Here comes a beautiful antique German bisque head character girl doll, made around 1914 by Heubach Koppelsdorf, as you can see on the maker’s mark on the back of dolls head. The bisque head sits on an antique jointed body, partly wooden, partly made of composition. We cannot say if the body may be original the size fits perfectly, the torso looks French to me, but can’t be sure.
Antique character girl stands 50 cm / 19 374 inches tall.
The bisque head is fine with some small traces of age as covered in the photographs, the blue glass sleep eyes are functioning well, eye lashes and lid wax are present.
Doll has an open mouth with 4 visible teeth, if there once was a tongue, it is not present anymore. The cardboard covering the head is to small, it is held by a bit of medical tape. The long hair wig is quite fine and can easily be arranged into another coiffure.
As you can see in the photographs the old jointed body was restored before and shows the age of this doll much more than the face. Despite of this the body is stable, all elastics are firm, and the doll can be posed easily.
Doll is dressed in white bloomers (old but not antique), an antique chemise and an exceptionally fine antique dress. The socks and shoes stem from the 1980’s.
