This beautifully detailed Untitned Bisque doll, collectors refer to as Parian-type, with the hairstyle called "Empress Eugenie" will be a jewel in any collection of 19th century lady dolls. She has an untinted bisque shoulder-head on a cloth body.
She is a larger example than often found and has lovely bisque. Her facial features are skillfully done and are perfect tones against her creamy bisque "skin." Her molded scarf-front snood is perfectly complemented by the costume she wears.
Her previous owner was an expert seamstress, great care was taken in the fabric choices, style research and execution of the doll's stockings, drawers, slip, blouse and overdress. The result is stunning.
Maker: unknown, German company
Condition: Head has no cracks, chips or repairs, there is a tiny blue mark on the front of her hair, not sure if it is surface or fired in, very slight rubs on the top of her scarf. Her cloth body looks to be antique and possibly original, the cloth arms have been replaced at some point in the doll's life, they are very well made and shaped, with stitched fingers.
