This 25 ½ inch tall doll, circa the 1880s was manufactured by the German firm of Hertwig. The flat top china head with painted features measures 6 ½ inches. The china lower arms and legs are antique while the body is appropriate but a newer cotton body jointed at the shoulders and hips. The head is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There are a few typical black specks in the china that is typical on these type china heads. The number 10 is incised on the back of the shoulder plate. The antique china arms and legs show some chipping and wear with an old hairline crack on the left arm. When this doll is dressed in new finery but her future owner, she will be a lovely addition to any collection.
