German Bisque Head Doll Needs TLC
For the doll restorer, I am offering several dolls that need attention. The first one is this 24" ball jointed wood and composition doll marked AWs Germany II on the back of her socket style bisque head. Adolf Wislizenus dolls are of very good quality according to some doll experts. Her head doesn't appear to have any cracks or lines but her eyes are still partially inside her head...the weight hangs down and one eye has come out as it was in pieces. I can not tell the condition of the other eye. She has a dimple in her chin, pretty painted face and what I think may be square cut teeth (I am not an expert on dolls!) Any lines that appear in photos are either mold lines or pieces of hair from her previous wig. There is a pate on her head which I did not try to remove. Her body has a mark on it from a previous stay at Erisman's Doll Hospital of Lancaster, Pa. which is no longer in operation. Mr. Erisman died in 1961 at age 97 and I do not know when the hospital closed. The body is missing the lower part of the left leg below the knee which should be an easy find. The other foot needs some attention as does her right hand which is missing 2 fingers. There is also surface wear to some areas and she needs to be restrung. I am sure someone will cherish the opportunity to bring her back to her former glory days. She will be beautiful!
