This young lady is a half doll from the 1920's and looks similar to the boudoir dolls of that time. She is interesting because she has a removable faded blue skirt that is filled with sawdust and ties just below the waist. She stands 7.5" tall and 5" across the base. I think she is made of plaster, but she could be a good chalk ware piece. She has aged pretty well, but she does have a small chip at the end of her nose and there is no paint at the back of her head, some paint chips on her back too. That being said, she is still presenting well. Just her eyes and pouty mouth are painted. Her hand are over her heart.
Below her waist is incised a copyright mark, K. G., 1928.
An unusual and interesting piece that would look good on a dresser or in a collection. Nice addition.
