This charming German china head doll, generally attributed to Hertwig, is circa 1885. Her low brow hairstyle has a center part with lots of lovely high profile curls. She has no damage or repair - she does have some very slight kiln dust in her glaze which adds to her wonderful cottage charm. She is on an antique cloth body with china arms and legs that have pink painted ribbons and molded and painted blue heeled boots. Her head circumference is 9 inches and from the top of her head to the bottom of the shoulderplate is 4.75 inches. Marked with a 5 on the back of her shoulderplate.
Wearing a lovely pink cotton dress, undergarments, and pantaloons.
From a smoke-free home.
