Here is a wonderful 1840s -1850s papier mache 22" lady doll with a papier mache head. These heads were made in Germany, often by Andreas Voit. They were imported by French doll makers who put them on kid fashion style bodies, then selling them as French dolls. The head has short painted hair with brush stroke curls covered by a carefully styled human hair wig.
Her inset glass eyes reveal a high intelligence, and while not flawless, her papier mache face is lovely with an open mouth look that tells us she is not afraid to speak her mind. The jaunty ribbon that ties her bonnet, her lace collar, buttons and pompom trim show that she is aware of the latest styles but is not flashy. She is a confident girl, and happy with who she is. She might have stepped right out of the pages of Jane Eyre.
