This 5 inch tall china shoulder head, circa the 1880s-90s, was manufactured by the German firm C.F. Kling & Company Porcelain Factory. The head is in excellent condition with molded and painted facial features and black hair. The head is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is minimal typical wear to the black paint on the back of the head. The doll also has some incised numbers on the back of the shoulder plate but they are too faint for me to read. The doll measures 4 inches from shoulder to shoulder and 2 ½ inches from front to back. I always love the gently expressions of the Kling china dolls. This head could be attached to a body or displayed just as she is.
