This lovely Antique 1800's Glazed China Doll was purchased at an estate sale. The length of head and dress is 18". She has a beautiful serene glazed china face with painted blue eyes. Perfect little red bowed mouth and very rosy cheeks. Her hair is blond with bangs and deeply molded curls. She has a cloth body with china arms. One arm is detached, but comes with the doll. She is wearing a badly stained original dress and under-ware. Only cloth filled stumps for legs. If she had legs and booted feet, they are gone.
Marked incised 1000x3 or 7000x3 on the back shoulder-plate. My research tells me she was probably made in Germany in the mid 1800's. Her china head is in very good condition. No crazing, chips, or cracks.
