4" Antique Metal Doll Head. Nicely molded doll head with original enamel finish. The shorter style hair could possibly represent a boy. Metal head dolls were sold as complete dolls with a cloth or leather body or as replacement heads for when a bisque head was broken. They were meant for play dolls as they did not break if dropped. This unusual head has blue painted eyes a red accent line above eyes and an open closed mouth. The molded hair is a light blond color. Head would make about a 14"-15" doll when put on a body and would need a body about 11"-12" from top of shoulder to feet. The head is in great shape for it's age, a few chips in the enamel but in overall nice condition. There are some paint touch ups on mouth but they are older and nicely done. Marks: Doll is unmarked but of German make. Circa 1900-1910. Nicely done unusual metal head.
