3" Antique Bisque Nippon Shoulder Head. Japan made bisque dolls during World War 1 when Germany was not exporting and continued to make dolls after the war. They are marked Nippon or a company name. This lovely girl is made of a white stone bisque with light brown tinted hair and subtle cheek color. Her eyes are painted blue and and has an open closed mouth. She has a fine age crack on her shoulder but it is on the side in back and does not detract. She would need a body about 8" from shoulder to feet and would make a 10" doll. Her limbs would be bisque. She has pieces of red cloth on the inside of her head so she probably had a red cloth body. Her painting is nicely done. Marks: Patent No 30441 Nippon. Circa 1915-1920. Unusual stone bisque head with nicely molded hair.
