This 17 inch tall doll, circa the 1890s, was manufactured in Germany by the Hertwig and Company Porcelain Factory. The 4 ¼ inch tall china shoulder head has painted facial features and a black low brow hairstyle. The doll has a cloth body jointed at the shoulders and hips with china lower arms and legs. The head is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The cloth body is sturdy; however, the left china leg has been cracked and glued together. Handwritten on the back of the cloth body is the name, “Annette.” She wears antique white cotton underclothing. It is sewn on the doll so I did not try to remove it. Annette is waiting for a new home with a loving collector.
