25 inch antique KPM (Pictured) china head with center-parted brown hair drawn down over her ears in the 1840's style often worn by the Young Queen Victoria of England. Her large blue eyes have the typical KPM outline: red on the outer edges with a dark center area. She has rosy cheeks, a closed mouth with a gentle smile, and brown eyebrows that match her hair.
She represents a young woman with long slender neck and sloping shoulders.
An antique original kid body has separately wired fingers,/ and stitches jointing at the hips and knees allowing the doll to sit securely in a chair. The body shows some areas of wear.
She wears a well-made dress of silk with velvet trim, and bows running down the front and a velvet skirt and high button antique leather boots. Dress and boots are attractive, though of a much later style than the doll.
The doll won a First Prize blue ribbon at the 12Th UFDC annual convention, Miami Florida in 1961.
The head was made by Konigliche Porzellan Manufacktur, Berlin, Germany, circa 1840's.
