This 16 inch tall doll, circa the 1860s, has a 4 ½ inch tall pressed china head manufactured in Germany by the Kister Porcelain Factory. The antique cloth body is most likely original to the doll with some age discoloration. The head has a flat top hairstyle with some minor paint wear to the curls on the back of the head. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. With the pressed porcelain and great old body, this doll has an especially lovely early charm and presence.
