Offering for sale a wonderful 19th century Germany half doll or pincushion doll. Most of these we find are only the porcelain half doll, or upper part; this one has all her original base, the lovely costume pincushion part ! She has a skirt of golden yellow taffeta over which is sewn and pinned old ecru lace and hand sewn robin egg blue velvet ribbon trim at her waist, very elegant. Her base is marked Germany on the bottom. The base is in good condition, with the lace loosely draped, possibly the prior owner never finished sewing it on, or more probably there might have been an overskirt of blue that is no longer present on which this lace was originally sewn, and that would be quite easy to replace if one desired. The porcelain part is in very good condition with no cracks , damage or repairs. She is 3 & 1/2" tall including the base, one of the rarer small sizes.
