Every inch of this German Paper Mache doll is wonderful and there are a lot of inches! She has vertical curls, brown eyes and a lovely expression.
Her shoulderhead is on a cloth body with kid lower arms which have individual fingers. She has painted wisps around the hairline and beautifully feathered eyebrows.
She is wearing antique clothes consisting of white unders and a white cotton dress with blue print on it. She also has a beautiful pair of early doll shoes.
She would look great in a carriage or chair. If you like mid 19th century dolls this is the girl for you!
Maker: unknown German company
Marks: she is unmarked
Condition: Good overall, there is some flaking to her hair paint and her cheeks look like they have either been kissed a few too many times or perhaps lightly painted over (not distracting).
Clothing is sewn on and therefore has not been removed by me.
